    You can use drywall nails or screws.  It depends on what you wanna do with them.

    Screws are the best  for ceiling installation.

    Nails will work for the wall installation, they are cheaper than screws.

    I have been using eifs fasteners, it is more reliable and effective specially if use with wall that is with fiberglass lath. I have known to use this product after their business site http://www.sunlinemesh.com/ agent recommended their products directly to me during our home renovation period.
