Slate Patio

Hello. I am planning on making a patio out of slate stones. They are all irregularly shaped and are all mostly 1 1/2" thick. What are the instructions I should follow from start to finish in making my patio? I have done some research and have heard different things:

Different depths to dig and set sand, etc

Also what kind of "grout" should be used in between the slate?

Thanks in advance!
