And for the carpet, yes. You can have "glue" sprayed down, the pad applied, and then more glue is sprayed on the pad, and carpet can be stretched over that. It has stuck incredibly well in the high traffic area of my house, as well as on the cold basement floors.

Mikey - If you're putting that carpet down in the basement, I HIGHLY recommend that you seal the floor first w/Dry-LOCK first!

Although it IS a pain to do, if carpet secured w/ tack strips ever puckers, you can always re-stretch it and IMO it's a lot easier to replace when you're ready to change, However . . as has been said already - you can glue it if you want to.
As to the paint question, it will also depend on the surface you are trying to cover as well as colors (covering darks w/ lights will take more/thicker coats if it's not primed over first).
If this is "new wall" or otherwise never before painted surface (or it's a darker color you want to cover w/ a lighter color) then I'd like to suggest something along the lines of Kilz Primer/Sealer ( http://www.kilz.com ).Take Care - Stay Safe - God Bless

A gallon of paint will cover 47 sq. ft.
Yes, you can put down carpet with only small finish nails in the corners.
If he didn't know the answer, how's he going to know not to listen to me? I'm not telling the truth, or am I?

Sorry, I couldn't help that one.
