Hello and welcome jwade, to the best darn DIY'r site on the web.
Your question is a bit open ended, are you doing a shower install?
Have you removed the old wall board, tile or whatever was there?
Are the walls in question internal walls?
A brief description of what you are doing would be helpful to formulate an answer.
When its all said and done there is usually more said than done
