Bicycle Mechanics - Titanium Seatpost in Steel Frame - Ti Prep?

I am going to be installing a Campagnolo Chorus titanium seatpost in my Merckx steel frame and was wondering if I can use regular bike grease - Finish Line teflon grease is what I typically use - or should I use a titanium prep?
If ti prep is the way to go - what kind/brand? And where do you get it? Never used this stuff before, any application instructions? Or use it just like grease?

ti prep, or anti-seize.

Permatex Nickel Anti-Seize Lubricant. Try NAPA Autoparts locally or http://www.napaonline.com/Search/Detail.aspx?R=BK_77124_0006382899 .
Use it just like grease. Thin coat goes a long way and it can stain everything in sight, so wipe clean the exposed surfaces after adjustments are completed.
