Warning! Do Not Glue Down!

If you glue down the boards to the plywood subfloor, the different expansion/contraction rates with temperature and humidity of the plywood and pine floor will cause big problems including joint separation and possible spliting of the pine flooring.
My preference would be to use red rosin paper between the subfloor and the pine flooring, and nail with a tongue nailer you can rent. If you want, you could use a little glue between the boards, in the tongue and groove joint, but do not glue to the subfloor!
Good Luck!
