Ok, but I am doing a double setup. I believe someone had mentioned that he/she had needed to put a spacer to push the BB out 2mm. I may have got that idea from another thread; cannot recall.

Generally speaking if you are doing a double the derailleurs will take care of chainline problems because they route the chain towards the sprockets. With a single front cog and a wide rear set of like 8 gears plus it is best to get the chainring in the middle or sometimes the chain will come off the front chainring. I suspect from h88711's post he has a single chainring bike. Roger
