We will be refinishing a room in our basement that currently has concrete walls. Is there anything specific that I need to do in order to hang drywall on concrete?

I understand that I will need to put wood "studs" up every 18inches to sink the drywall into. But, is there any specific or different prep work when putting up drywall on a concrete wall? Also, any tips on securing the studs to the concrete? Would you use screws for this and a power drill?

Thank you for pointing me in the right direction!
