Assuming the 2x2's ar a true 1-1/2" square, us 2" masonry nails - these are the round nails with a fluted shank.

For the firring strips, I'd use a #6x1-1/2 wood screw. You may have to predrill the strips to prevent splitting. And since you're going to be hanging drywall from it, I'd space them 12" apart, not 16" or 24".
