Insulating a shed.

Just needed to find out how to do the above correctly, as I've had mixed signals from some research I have already done & forums I have been on.
In a nutshell, I was going to use rockwall for the walls & roof. But was not sure on how to insulate them correctly.
What I mean is, do I put the polythene membrane against the shed wall? or rockwall against the shed wall first (which order) to acheive my goal?
I have a T & G floor which came with the shed, but I wanted to put some kind of boarding over the exsisting floor, but wanted to know If I needed to put some kind of membrane between the floors as well?
I was going to seal all the cracks & gaps inside with clear sealant, & expandable foam before I did all of this, & I have also thought about putting 1 vent in one of the walls as well.
I just wan't to avoid all the the moisture, & damp pitfulls there are to all of this.
Sorry for the long explanation, but I wan't to get this right from the off, &
really need some help as I've never done this before.
