tile over linoleum

Can tile be laid over lineoleum? Our house is 40 years old and the room was originally a garage converted into a family room. Under the carpet is a black foam pad which will require scraping to get off. The lineoleum is solid with no raised surface pattern from what we can see. We would like to do as much preparation work ourselves, but will have the tile laid professionally. Thanks for any input.

There are lot's of thin sets that will stick to the lino......but you have to remember that your tile installation, is only as strong as the floor you put it on. If the lino comes loose in the future..so will your tile.
