Base board goes on top of carpet right? Also how do I fasten the wains coating to the sheet rock? Do I have to put a furring strip at the top and bottom? Im afraid that will make it stick out from the wall to far. Is there a better way?

You don't HAVE to pull the carpet. The wainscoting doesn't HAVE to go clear to the floor. Infact if you are not wanting to replace the carpet right now, i'd leave it up enough to pull the old carpet. The baseboard should go pretty tight to teh carpet.
When I install baseboard in a house and the painter, carpet layer and myself are all on tha same page, I isntall baseboard BEFORE carpet, about 1/2" above the subfloor. Paint it in place, then the carpet layer can tuck the carpet right under. Saves alot of hassle masking/ cutting in paint against carpet.
The IDEAL way to install wainscotting is to cut the sheetrock back, add nailers(and possible more insulation on exterior walls) then the wainscoting, then chair rail above and baseboard below, as a way to aleiviate the sticking out into the room problem.

Just my humble advice. Worth every cent you paid for it!

Well if you are using vertical boards for your wainscot and the existing wall isn't blocked or sheated under the sheetrock your only options are to find a good cons't adhesive and glue the boards or remove the sheetrock where the wainscot is going to be and sheet the framing with plywood to give the nails or screws something to fasten into. We had to do this on a place this past summer.

Pull carpet back. One way to get the "old" look, is to start out with a 1 inch, or 5/4 base board (if you are using 3/4 wainscoat) say a 1x4 or 1x6 and set your 3/4 boards on top of the base. Set your base on 3/8 blocks, (remove after install) and the carpet layer will tuck underneath base. Glue is fine, but if you have access to a trim nailer, you can toe-nail the edge of the tongue on a 45 to hold them in place till the glue dries.
