    Well, not a fan of linoleum anyway ... with so many durable and beautiful finish floors, why go
    there? Slight subfloor variations will "telegraph" through linoleum, hence your problem. Why
    not laminat...

    overspray and pad staples. Regardless, you can't put ceramic on it without a layer of plywood
