bathroom sink cabinet- fastening it down

This might be in the wrong forum, but I have been forced to replace the cabinet that my bathroom sink sits on due to water damage, and since the old just wasnt fastened down in any way(there are alot of wierd thing like that in this house!) I dont know how to fasten down the new one. I don't consider leaving it unfastened to be an option, since the reason this happened is because every time somone leaned one the sink or bumped into it the base moved and caused the drainpipes to leak.

Shim the sink base cabinet, as necessary, to level it. (Strips of beveled cedar shingle work well for this.)
Put a couple of screws through the back of the cabinet base frame into wall studs (16" centers). Caulk the edge(s) against the wall to prevent splash leak.
That will hold it securely.
Good Luck!
