Framing interior wall - disconnected

On a side note, if this wall is to fall between trusses, as mine is, do I just install cross members between the bottom chords and then use truss clips to anchor wall to cross members?

No need for truss clips. I'd just nail them into the cross members, as they will span across the bottom chords and will be fastened solidly. It gives you 16, 19.2 or 24" of adjustment.

I was just going with truss clips in case of truss lift and wasn't sure if that was a code requirement.

Yes on the truss clips, fig.10; BSI-023: Wood Is Good . . . But Strange — Building Science Information

Other nailing requirements for your location; Chapter 6 - Wall Construction

Gary, good article on the truss clips, but he isn't attaching his wall to the trusses on the wall in question, but to lookouts between the trusses. FFSchooley, if I misunderstood the location of your use of the clips, I apologize. Yes, use them where the walls cross the trusses, by all means. I thought you were talking about the lookouts and the wall under them.

Since this is a hijacked thread, I am going to give it's own title and thread.

Larry, I understood the truss blocking is fastened to the trusses, with the wall connected to the blocks... the block would move with the truss, hence; need the clip at block/wall.

As gary stated, it will be running parallel to the trusses, so connected to blocking between the bottom chords. Since these would move with the trusses, the wall should be connected to the blocking with clips. Correct?

I'd recommend the clips as well. Be sure the fasteners you use in the clips fit loosely into the hole so that they don't squeak as the bottom chord of the trusses moves up and down.
