Hi: We just had our plumbing redone throughout the house. I am also remodeling my bathroom. we removed the old tub and enclosure and with that some of the plaster wall came off. I also noticed that it was damaged by water. So, I removed part of the wall to the wood frame. We are going to install a combination tub/shower and going to have ceramic tile as the surround. So, do I put a waterproof membrane first and then the cement board and then the tile? If so, please instruct me as to how to attach it to the remaining wall that's there.

if I understand your question correctly. remove all old plaster/lathe or wallboard where new tub/shower is going.
install tub. install cement board directly to studs. tile. grout. done.
