Cement Walls

Shortly I will be replacing the ceiling in my basement (burst pipes are so much fun). My wife has decided to add to my dilema by requesting that I replace the wood paneling on the walls with drywall while I am at it. As I was getting the room ready I was tearing off the wood paneling to see what was beneath. It appears that there is some 2" styrofoam insulation then the foundation wall (standard cinderblock & mortar). The wood paneling was merely glued to the styrofoam. I am hesitant, however to just glue the drywall to the insulation. Is that the proper method, or is there a better way? Thanks in advance for any information you can provide.

RE:Budget

Since I need to buy tools as well, I was looking to spend about $200-300.
