Drywall on the ceiling.

Is it OK to put drywall over a ceiling that has 1" panels, if they are all in tact and the wood is good underneath? The panels are made from some type of fibrous material that has been compressed.

Drywall can normally be hung over most surfaces providing it will lay flat and can be secured to the framing.

Ditto.

Use adhesive and the proper length screws.

I agree on the condition that you take some time and either refasten the wood you are going to laminate, or you use longer screws to catch the studs/joists.

My only worry would be how well are those panels attached?

Sheetrock should not be attached to the panels but using long enough screws to attach it to the framing above.
