I have an old house. I would like to tile the walls in the bathroom. However, the walls are in tough shape (plaster,with wainscoating on bottom). Would it be ok to cover the walls with three-eighths inch plywood (sanded on one side) and tile right to the plywood?

Plywood would be the worst choice for tile backing. Why not use 1/2 in. cement backer board? You can get it at Home Depot or any tile supply store.
