Yup. You screw the flange to the floor. Ted covered it, but I'll repeat.

Position the flange over the concrete subfloor and mark the position of each screw hole. Remove the flange. Drill a hole into the concrete (using a carbide tipped masonry bit and preferably a hammer drill (if available)) to accept a lead anchor. You can get the anchors and matching screws (and the bit) at your favorite big box (if any big box can truly qualify as "favorite"). Tap the anchors into the holes.

When you tile, notch the tiles so that you don't cover the anchor holes. After the grouting is done, permanently connect the flange to the pipe and install the screws into the anchors.

Go Rutgers!
