painting over semi gloss on walls?


I need to re-paint a bathroom which has recently been painted with Valspar semi-gloss (from Lowes) on the walls. The new finish will be the Valspar Kitchen And Bath paint. What do I need to to do to properly prep the surface?
Thanks to anyone who can help.

Prime with SW Preprite Bonding Primer or Zinnser Bulls Eye 123... both are made especially for slick and hard to bond to surfaces.

I looked on Valspar's website and don't even see an Oil based paint, so odds are that is latex, and you can just paint right over it with any latex.
