Hello mikie253 and welcome to the Community,

In most cases laminate flooring can be installed over linoleum.  If there are large gaps or spaces those should be filled in before installation.  Also if the sub floor below the linoleum is concrete you should use a 6mil. vapor barrier.

You should always read the manufacturers installation instructions for your particular laminate flooring before you begin your installation.  These instructions can be found by:

Left click on the photo of the product you are interested in at Home  Then detailed installation instructions and product specifications can be found by clicking on the orange arrow beside the word “specification” which is below the photo of this product on Home  You will find an installation and user guide in a box to the right.  Read this over carefully to see if this is right for you.

Thank you for your inquiry.
