Basement Wall Under I-Beam

I want to frame a 6-foot wall directly under my steel I-beam which is in the middle of my basement. How should I attach the wood-framed wall to the bottom of the I-beam?

Usually you have two options. First, you can use self drilling screws to tap into the i-beam. I haven't had good luck with that option, so I usually just drill holes all the way through and put a bolt and washer in. You should be fine putting a bolt every couple of feet.
