Bead boards - not panels

I need to install bead boards (5" wide) tong/grove over drywall that has metal studs. Suggestions for best method would be appreciated. Several rooms; probably 150 boards that will be 48" high with a chair rail and base added.

Thanks for the confirmation. My thinking was along the same lines, shooting the nails at an angle. Thanks.
Thank you all for your suggestions. The staples and adhesive is what I plan to use, with some screws into the metal studs periodically. The chair rail and base should hold things together pretty well.

Thank you again. :thumbsup:
