Is this the finished flooring? Makes a big difference. If it's the finished flooring, pre drill and use 6d finishing nails.

Ok, good. My answer stands then. Tell us more. Is the wood 1x4 or 6", how about the subfloor? How old is the house, is the floor flat within specs?

I always blind nail through the tounge. When that's not possible I use an appropriately sized finish nail, set below flush, and filled with color matched filler. For 3/4" flooring I like 8d ring shank nails driven at opposing angles.
