self stick vinyl tiles over existing linoleum?

My kitchen has sheet linoleum (very good condition) that I would like to go over with self-stick vinyl square tiles. If the surface is properly prepared (cleaned, leveled, etc) do these things really stick well? I think I've heard enough negative stuff about the no glue sheet stuff to not consider it further.

Just make sure the floor is smooth. Any imperfections will show through. Use a primer. Some people have really good luck with those tiles and some don't. I have seen them shrink, too. Good luck.
