Vinyl on Vinyl on Tile on Concrete

Like the title says, my bathroom has vinyl on top of vinyl on top of tile on top of concrete.

I want to replace the vinyl with new vinyl. My thoughts are to remove the top layer of vinyl and then put 1/4" AC plywood on top, then vinyl over that.

If I were to do it that way, how do I fasten the plywood to the subfloor? Or is there a better way?

I'd get rid of all of it, and install directly to the concrete.
Plywood can not be layed over a slab.

You can take up everything except the tile and install IVC vinyl on top of it. It can be glued or loose layed.
