Alcohol primer AND use an airless paint sprayer.  

You can rent one from the local supply house for about fifty bucks.  You should probably buy a new tip (size 311) around $30.00.  Make sure not to shoot yourself with the spray gun, it can introduce air into your blood stream and kill you.  It's a serious tool but will make the results superior and faster.  

Might not be a bad idea to hire a professional painter to do it...

Here's an article from the Washington Post about painting laminate cabinets.

And here's a more condensed version of the same info from Ehow.

It's definitely a lot of work, depending on the size of your kitchen. And don't scrimp on any of the steps or you will end up with paint peeling from your cupboards.
