Metal framing for basement Drop Cieling?


I just got a job to frame out a basement in metal studs. I am young never used metal studs I have always done custom housing all wood frame. I have done many many basements and never done metal. So basically I am asking for a quick crash course, inmetal studs for the basement. I have a basic idea. just looking for quick tips and major concepts. What do I use for the bottom plate for moisture. Not a flood worry, just basic moisture you know do I use green plate any moisture barrier anything. Oh yea i am thinking of the trim should i use a wood bottom plate under the track for trim purposes so i have that nailer. Also he wants a drop cieling how do i do that basically out of metal studs or do i use wood or just a just fir it down with 2 by 2 or what I am just gonna box in the steel is that possible in steel well i am sure it is but how? Please help me all help is greatly appreciated.

Hi I read your posting. If you go to www.rd.com there is a whole lot of information. Just type in metal/steel framing it walks you through the whole process
Hope this helps
