Question vinyl flooring edges

I am installing a vinyl floor in my bathroom and I have two questions.
1) if the old linoleum floor is in pretty good shape, with the exception of a 3/4" gap along one edge, which i intend to fill with fixall, can I lay the new floor on top?
2.) How do I prevent the edges from popping up, as I have seen with many fairly new installations? Is there a seperate "edge adhesive" which has a greater bond than normal adhesive?

Installing vinyl over vinyl

Installing vinyl over vinyl may void manufacturer's warranties. Not using manufacturer's recommended adhesive tends to void warranties.

Typically, a quarter round or shoe molding is installed along the perimeter of the room next to the baseboard to hold down the edges of vinyl. I have, however, seen people install vinyl before installing baseboards. A flexible silicone caulk is used along the tub/shower to seal the gap.
