Steel frame (Reynolds 853 if it matters).

Carbon seatpost.

Grease for installation, yes or no?

Things were easy when everything was steel and alum. alloy.

I get mixed advice from shops. Some say the post will never hold position if it's heavily greased.

Just make sure the seat tube is completely clean, no old grease or grit in it. Make sure there are no burrs to scratch the post. If there are burrs, file them out. Put a very small, virtually non-existant film of grease along the top one inch of seat tube. This way, the post will slide in easily, without scratching the outer layer of carbon, but once clamped, it won't slip. I did this with an Easton post and it never slipped and never got stuck.
