Untreated wood should never be attached directly to concrete.
What is it your really trying to do?

I'm agreeing with joecaption that it must absolutely be pressure treated. Is this possibly for flooring?? If so, you may get a better response in the flooring section of this site. I would recommend using adhesive along with whatever fastener you use....
