Your Wallpaper Victories and Horror Stories Please

We're in the process of buying a new (to us) home and the former occupant was a little old lady who loved little old lady flowery wallpaper.

Mrs. BD of course hates every bit of it and to save money she (she actually means we and probably mostly me) plans to remove the wallpaper and paint the walls.
My on-line research seems to show that perforation, steaming and scraping are the leading methods. But I'd like to hear from the teeming masses on this one.

So please, any tips you could give me on getting that stuff off the walls is appreciated.

Also, if you have a celebrated victory or horror stories about your wallpapering projects I would love to hear them.
