installing crown moulding

I'm about to install crown moulding in my daughter's bedroom. Do I nail it in or glue it in. Also, is it easier if I just get those corner inserts (I don't know what they are called) or get a miter saw to do the corner joints. Lastly, do I get the wood precut or is it better to bring it home and cut it? I'm obviously a novice at this so any help would be appreciated.

Cut it at home. Try to buy pieces longer than the length of the walls to avoid having to make scarf joints.

Hope this helps.
