Frog, is the whole headliner coming down or is the fabric just coming off of the board?

If the fabric just coming off of the board you'll have to take the board out and take off all of the adhesive and then spray some 3M adhesive on and recover it. Don't try using the adhesive without getting off the old stuff because it won't work and it will make more of a mess.

This is a fairly easy project that you should be able to do yourself. As HK said remove the entire headliner then remove the fabric and foam backing from the board.Sand off all the old foam backing.Wipe the board clean and get yourself 2or 3 yards of foam backed fabric from an upholstery shop or you can buy it on line for about $15 a yard. Use some 3M spray adhesive on the board and foam backing and apply the fabric to the board. Trim off the excess and reinstall the headliner in the car.

Unfortunately there is not too many ways to take them out. I usually start from the back and wok my way forward. Loosen up and take off any pillars that are in the way, Then I hit the visors, and any coat hooks/grab handles. Last I usuall use a putty knife to peel back the inside edge guards and remove the headliner, shell and all. Don't forget the interior light. Be careful disconnecting this, I usually tape off the connections/remove fuse.
When installing, I put the screws back in their holes by a few threads first, and I dont cut the fabric on the headliner where things screw into. Once the headliner is up and looks to be in the right spot, I feel around for the screws(through the fabric) with a screwdriver and then poke holes in the fabric. Then you can mount your accesories. This prevents cutting too much before you put the headliner in. Be careful not to cut too little, you don't want the screw heads to catch the material and tear it.
When putting on the fabric start from the middle and work your way out to avoid wrinkles. It sounds worse than it is.
