Installing baseboard on a house with Steel Studs

Hi, I wonder if anyone can help me? Does anyone know how to install baseboard on a house that is all steel studs? Unfortunately all we have to work with is the drywall against the steel.
I guess the only way is to use some sort of finishing screws. Are they available at Home Depot or Lowe's?
Thanks for any help you can give

Welcome to the forums! Yes, 2" or longer trim screws are readily available at the big box stores. Some come with a bit in the box, but you should go ahead and buy a couple of #1 square drive bits, anyway. They will countersink with minimal wood damage.
