If you don't want any fasteners exposed, nail at an angle through the tongue so that the nail does not interfere with the groove as you slip the next piece in.

Also premarking your studs will help.

T&G on a wall

The simplest way is to apply panel adhesive to the back of each board as it goes up. The nails driven at an angle through the tongue will hold the board until the adhesive dries. You'll want to install the boards plumb so the first and last boards on each wall will have to be scribed, trimed to conform to the contour of the adjacent wall, since the walls will rarely be plumb or even straight. Also you'll want to measure each wall and divide it by the face width of the boards. To make sure that you wind up with a workable width on the last board on the wall, no slivers, you may have to rip down the first board on the wall.

You should get back with more detail about your project. Is this floor to ceiling or is it a wainscot? Is it all the walls or just a feature wall? It makes a difference when you come to what you're going to do with your trim.
