depending on how smooth the floorboards are will make the diference of what thickness you use. 4-6 mm if in good condition. Must be nailed with ring shank nails of divergent staples. If using thicker plywood you will have to screw it. You need to secure at 6" centres and every 2" around the edge. You then need to skim over the plywood with a feather finish compound to fill all joins and fixing holes. Then you should prime with the correct primer to seal the floor before using the glue. If you dont have the glue yet make sure you use pressure sensitive or in a area of different temps ( conservatory etc ) you need to use high temp adhesive.
