Underlayer board installation

Hello all,
I am soon to embark on the great tiling o my bathroom project, but have a question about installing the cement underboard. So here is what I think I need to do then perhaps I could be corrected?

Clean and scrape floor, to the subfloor. A layer of qwickset on the entire floor as level as possible, wait 24 hours and install the cement underlayer. Wait 24 hours then begin to lay the tile. 2 foot sections at a time, wait 48 hours and put in grout wait 72 hours and seal grout and clean.
This is all info I have gotten at home depot and seems to go against what I have read.

Any ideas?
thanks,
tren

Any Ideas? ..Yeah..don't listen to what they say at Home Depot! ...don't understand the quickset idea at all ..your cement board should be set in a bed of thin set, and then fastened to the floor....you can install the tile right away..no need to wait 24 hrs..after the tile has set(overnight) you can start grouting. It will say on the bottle of sealer how long you should wait....but it should be clean before you seal it..not seal and clean as you mentioned

well thanks for the words,
so here is the general plan.
tommorow clean floor apply thinset-and cement underboard.
Should I wait for it to dry or can I just start slubin tile on right away?
thanks,
tren

Adanack took the words right out of my mouth.

Websters defines slubin as:
Slubin, the verb to slub
to install ceramic tile or any sort of modular home improvement with the minimal amout of skill and or experience.

Oh I see.

Well the slubin is done, and I was slubin with the best of em if i say so myself.
Seemingly went of without a hitch last night. Finished around 8pm=) how long should I wait to grout?
adanac said overnight? So is 12 hours enough?
Thanks
Tren
