As far as hanging it, it is basically putting it on the wall and nailing it in. The fun comes when you start taping the corners and mudding it. You are going to get real dirty fast, and frustrated when you realize that after mudding that it is still not level enough and you have to mud some more.
I hope that's a Carolinian expression for using 1 1/4" drywall screws.
Well when I hang drywall by myself, I always nail the 4 corners in, then go back and screw it in after it is up. I have found it much easier when holding a 12 foot sheet of drywall by myself to nail the corners to get it to stay and then go back after it is hung and finish it off with screws.
