It's been years since this good question was answered and here's another solution. I had a similar question for hanging a heavy mirror on the hard plaster wall of my NYC apartment and went to Home Depot looking for the right type/size drill bit, anchors, screws, hooks, etc. They now carry hardened steel nails that "will not damage your walls" as they are a very small diameter. They also come in packages with hardware for hanging things, plus they're rated for 20 lbs, 30 lbs, 50 lbs.

Last Christmas, I removed 30+ yr. old wallpaper from my parents' kitchen. First I tried moistening it with the fabric softener/water solution and didn't get anywhere. I looked into renting a professional steamer but in the end bought a little wallpaper steamer from Home Depot, under $50. It worked wonders! It does drip water and doesn't have little attachments for nooks and crannies, but it's a good investment if you're going to do more than 1 room or spend more than a day with a rental. And do get the rolling scoring thingie! It's so much easier to score and perforate the wallpaper with it than with a knife.
