Live recording setup

You touched on live tracking in the "What do you actually do as a producer?" thread as being part of your and I wanted to dig deeper: Can you please give insight into how you want the band/the engineer to set up for the live tracking part of a recording? What are you watching out for? What works for you, what are typical problems and solutions to those? To be a little more specific, some things I am interested in: levels in the room, separation concerns, orientation and distance of amps relative to drums when tracking in one room, tracking vocals in the same room while tracking the instruments, monitoring -- but please, feel free to run wild with it. I'm really just looking for your insight on this topic. I'm sure whatever it is, it will be awesome.

Thanks a ton in advance!
