basement wall

I am wanting to finish off the rest of my basement. The basement walls are concrete. I am wanting to put in a non load bearing wall. How exactly do you secure the 2x4 frame to the concrete?

Nailing with a powder nailer is probably the most common way to secure the bottom plate to concrete.

one of the other methods

is using red heads. You drill a hole in the plate and concrete then beat these things into the hole and then tighten them up.
