Metal Stud track on concrete floor

Folks,
Is it ok to attach steel stud tracks directly on to concrete or do i need to use treated wood and steel on top


Thanks

For an interior wall not weather-exposed, skip the wood. It's just metal studs and drywall, right?
Will there be any openings in the wall such as doors and cased openings? Those will require more significant attachment.

Thanks, Its just metal studs and drywall (non load bearing ) room dividers
The plan is to use wood studs around the door openings.

Wood studs are not necessary, just dbl steel studs, back to back, on each side.
