adhering sheet vinyl to tile

friend of mine in a cheap condo wants me to put down sheet vinyl over the ugly older tile in bathroom- While I don't think it's the best look- what is the best type of adhesive to use to attach the sheet vinyl to the existing floor?

Sheet vinyl needs a very smooth floor. I think the grout lines in the tile will cause problems. But, if you've gotta do it I'd just use regular adhesive for vinyl flooring.

Is the existing floor ceramic tile or vinyl tiles?

I'm with Dane that I think the end result is going to be ugly; vinyl is very good at showing all of the imperfections in the floor beneath it.
