Attaching shed to cement slab.

I currently have a 8x10 aluminum shed on a 10x10 cement slab. I want to replace it with a 10x10 wooden shed. My question is: How do I anchor the wooden shed to the cement slab? What would be the best, most secure, way of anchoring? I've heard of epoxy anchors, but I have never seen then used before. Has anyone useed them before and if so, are they easy to install?
Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you,

Epoxy anchors work very well but are probably overkill. Redheads, or any other concrete expansion bolt will hold a 10 x10 shed where it is forever. I'd use either 3/8 or 1/2" bolts 3-1/2" long. Put one in each corner, either side of each doorway and every 32" in between.

You could bolt the bottom sills down two ways. One is to install studs into the concrete and use a washer and nut to hold the sill. Or you could use concrete screws. Something coated would be your best bet, because they will get rusty eventually. Don't forget to use a vapor barrier between the wood and concrete.
