Answer:

put up moisture resistent dry wall if you can find the one that is purple at your supply store,use it it has a mildiside in it ,if not get green-board! CAUTION THOUGHT when putting up over existing, you need a different screw length (based on what you are going through!******** regular wall board isn't fine!!!!!! source------ builder with common sense!!!!!

You should just put it up normal, if steam is a problem, you should have an exhaust fan

Regular wall board is fine. the green board is for the walls around the sink, toilet, and tub.
