What is the best way to hang sheetrock or drywall?

This topic is available here on The Repair-Place forum
I am wondering what is the best way to hang sheetrock, or dry wall?

Should I use drywall screws, or drywall nails?

Is there a difference?

SCREWS!!! You could nail the sheet to just hold it then go back after you can let go of the sheet and then screw it with drywall screws. This is much better holding power as well as the dent by the hammer is a larger spot to fill.

Use a drywall screw gun like the Dewalt or the Milwaukee or the Hilti brands, these are my favorites! The Hilti even has an extension with auto screw feed for the hard to reach ceiling!
