limestone basement walls

What is the best fastener for limestone walls to attach 2x4 framing studs to it? I have a friend who is finishing his basement, and wants to frame in the walls. Does he need to fasten the 2x4's to the walls, or would attaching them to a bottom and upper sill enuf? thanks

The walls should be clear of the existing stone walls by about 1" and nailed to the slab and framing above. Run a search through this section of the forum. There are several details unique to framing walls in a basement that must be considered.
