Fastening to concrete

As a previous commentor pointed out, make sure you use
pressure treated for the sole plate. I would recommend
getting a ramset to drive the nails into the concrete
floor. In fact, I recommend buying one, you can buy
a hammer activated one for about $18 at the depot and
they're invaluable for fastening lumber to the walls
when you want to add shelving. If you don't want to buy
one, you can rent them from your local tool rental outlet
for a couple dollars a day, but you'll still have to buy
the nails and charges.
