/ Stud walls in the kitchen
Or you could tape and joint the boards, thats easier.
what are you going to attach the cabinet to?

I'd imagine the new wall.
Make sure you attach to the studs not the plasterboard
I'm thinking about doing something similar - decent thread here
Some friends of ours moved into a newly built house. A few weeks after they moved in there was a house-shaking crash from the kitchen as the cupboard contining the china detached from the stud wall to which was inadequately fixed. I believe that correct re-installation involved placing pieces of plywood in the partition.

So would you space the studs according to the fixings for the cabinet?
A 2" stud doesn't leave much margin for error.
Definitely do this - You can't depend on the studs being where you want them and under no circumstances should you load the boards :) - also you should skim the whole wall - Taping and filling the joints is really only half a job, and the thing's going to be up a long time, hopefully.
Agreed, pattressing is the way to go. It's way more flexible and gives you some construction tolerance.
