Install new acrylic tub

I am installing a new acrylic tub to replace an old one. The tub is on a slab floor.

Should I use something under the tub? (Foam, thinset, etc...)

I know I need plumbers putty around the drain, but do I use Teflon tape or pipe dope or anything on the threads of the drain in the bottom of the tub where it connects to the PVC drain line?

You don't really need anything but tephlon tape never hurts.
