Trim screws.

Google is your friend!

I'm sure this is a little late in the project, but here goes.
When using metal studs, I install 1/2" ply at the base to nail the trim into. I also add wood 2x4's around the doors and windows so I can nail the trim on.
Trim screws will work on painted moldings. Not so well on stained.
