Yeah, you want a bigger notch than 1/4. Like Bob said, 1/2 would be okay but I would still look at each tile, butter up when you need to. You want to make sure and get enough thinset under the tiles. That's why I said Versabond, it's a good thinset and not real expensive, you'll need a bunch. I'd figure about 50 sq ft a bag .

Alot of folks buy Saltillo cause it's so cheap and it does make a nice floor but the cost is in the setting of it. It takes a lot of thinset and grout. Having a little patience doesn't hurt. If the tiles are warped with a high corner, which they will be, try putting 4 high corners together.
