vinyl squares over vinyl?
 
I have an old kitchen floor that has the large roll type vinyl floor. I need to replace it and was wondering if I could lay the 18"x18" vinyl tiles on top of the existing vinyl. I was trying to avoid pulling up the old vinyl. I was thinking of just putting some plywood over the old vinyl. Would either method work?

As long as it's a wood subfloor. Plywood over the vinyl would be fine.

Yes you can just stick them to the existing vinyl.

Any pattern in the old vinyl will show through. You would also need to get all grease, wax etc, off the old vinyl and use a primer. And then they may not stick.
