Can I use stick on tile/flooring over "old, old" wall paper?

Answered
I have "old" wallpaper in my kitchen where I would LOVE to install stick on tile/flooring for a backsplash. If I can't get all the wallpaper off, could I still install the peel & stick tile/flooring on the wall? Some of it is only help by thumb tacks or small nails but in some places it is glued. I plant to try to get it off. It is not a very big space so I think it will come off but if not could I add extra spray adhesive to the wall with the stick on tile/flooring?

    If the wall paper is not firmly attached to the wall.. then whatever you put over it will not hold either... kind of like installing floor tile over a carpet...You could use decorative upholstery nails to hold the peel and stick tile to the wall... It would be better for you to take the time to remove the wall paper before you install any thing else in its place.
