Talking How best to install moulding after carpet install??

My wife has decided that we now need moulding after the carpet has been installed. I know its much preferable to install it before carpet is done, but hey thats not how her mind works!!
Does anyone have tips for installing moulding over carpet? I gotta do it, just looking for the best way.

What type of molding are you talking about?

Wall base, round, shoe molding, or transition moldings.

Just so it barely touches the top of the carpet fibers. You don't want to "trap" the carpet under the base or you'll have to remove it next time you install carpet.
