Tile over concrete

I'm going to be installing ceramic tile in my basement. But there is a crack in the concrete that runs thru the area that I wish to tile. Is it safe to just tile over it, or is there certian precautions that I should take?

Cracked slabs are a bummer when installing any hard surface!!

I would look into using Ditra, as an uncoupling membrane. If not, and you go over it without, the tile will crack where your crack is now.
