There are a few great threads on this and a couple of blogs.

Try this first and I will see if I can find the really good thread.

I did that this weekend for my son's birthday cake and I was very happy with the results!

It isn't necessary to "crumbcoat" when using ganache. I use ganache under fondant quite often but I just spread a coat of it on my cake...it needs to be thick enough to give you a smooth finish..if your cake isn't smooth the fondant will not be smooth.
