We have a finished basement, with carpeting over pad. We want to put in a new partition wall. Can the sill plate go on top of the carpeting or does it need to rest on the concrete floor?

I guess you could put it on the carpet. But it would be better (and not much more work) to cut the carpet and put it on the concrete (use pressure treated lumber).

You put in on the concrete. You must fasten your sill to the concrete floor.
