Question Basement ceramic tile

I was thinking of installing ceramic tile in my basement. I taped some peices of plastic on the concrete floor and there dosen't seem to be a moisture problem. The concrete is kind of uneven and it slopes to a drain along one wall. Also the floors are/were painted some time ago. How do I go about this??? Thanks for your help!

roughn or remove the paint and if no moisure you should be good to go!!If you have cracks you might want to consider a crack isolation membrane like nobleseal cis.(how uneven)

Thanks for the quick reply ee3! would sanding the paint with 50 grit be considered roughing it up? I know I can remove it if I put duct tape on it and pull it off. It'll take a while though. the floor isn't that uneven. If I put a 2x4 down there are a couple minor dips here and there. the house is about 50 years old.
