I have always put the two cats in separate rooms - typically I put the new cat in a room like a bathroom or a spare bedroom so as not to unnecessarily restrict the "current" cat's movements. I visit the new cat regularly and make sure it has food/water/litterbox/toys in there. The cats should sniff around the door and become aware of each others' presence quite easily; they will probably meow (or growl or hiss) at each other and reach their paws underneath. After 24-48 hours, I would put open the door and allow them to meet under your supervision. I would do only "supervised visitation" for a while until you are sure they are tolerating each other well.
