hardwood flooring over slab??

Hi all,
We're in the process of trying to pick out flooring to cover a slab in our EIK/dining area. We were hoping to be able to go with a pre finished hardwood, but I'm concerned about attaching the flooring.
Height is a concern because of two in-swing doors in the room, which leave us with a little over 1 1/4 " over the slab. Is there an adhesive method that would allow me to put the hardwood down over 1/2" plywood or anything????
Any suggestions would be appreciated, Thx.

You can buy hardwood flooring that has the same wear thickness as a solid. Then you can glue it to the sub floor. You will have to make sure the floor is flat with no high or low spots.
