Mounting 37" LCD on Metal Stud Wall

I am trying to mount a 37" LCD TV on a 5/8" sheetrock wall that has metal studs 24" on center. The mount came with hardware for a wood stud wall. What type of anchors should I use for the place I can catch the metal stud and what type of anchor should I use for just the drywall?

I'de use toggle bolts to anchor into the studs. I wouldn't trust drywall to hold my TV even though there are drywall anchors that claim to hold alot of weight.

mount a 24 inch board from stud to stud with metal screws.

Paint the board to match the wall, then mount the tv mount to the board
