tiling tub surround


Hi,

I want to tile the walls around my tub. As of now, the wall surround is sheetrock (I took out the flimsy faux tile shower insert that was there).

My questions are, "Can I use cement board over sheetrock, and do I need to use a felt vapor barrier over the sheetrock that already there before putting the cement board up?"

Thank you so much!
