We are looking at changing the flooring in the basement and investigating some nice laminate - what do you put under the laminate on a basement floor as Im sure it will require more then just the foam that is provided?

You'll need to put down a subfloor, vapour barrier and padding underneath. Here'a a site with lots of good info: http://basementflooringguide.com/laminate-basement-flooring-installation/Hope that helps!
