you can attach the two by fours with the "4" side against the wall but if you wanted to run electrical or insulate would be hard or use 1" foam. if you just want a wall i would rip 2x4 in half and double your quantity. attach with rawl concrete anchors probably 2 1/2 inch or just a 16d nail and a piece of wire. when you drill don't force the drill and make sure you go in and out to get all of the dust out. buy a new bit it should go in easy.

Since you have a ramset, I would use this to fasten the 2x4's to the concrete floor. You can use 2 1/2 nails with #4 (Yellow) to fasten. These nails are fine for pressure treated. I use Remington. If you get in over your head, drop me a note as I live in Bloomfield. Whenever I am on your side of town, I eat at Luen Hop on Queen Street. Great Chinese food...
