Set up your own thread--hope you find it---

NO--- do not put backer board over that oak flooring---it moves to much and will cause a failure--

Remove the oak and add 3/4" ply--then thinset and backer--nailed or screwed--

OR add 3/8" or 1/2" on top of the oak--then thinset and backer---1/4" backer is fine for a floor--Mike---

Although I've done that a few times, (with a warning to the client), it is not an approved method at all.
