What is the best fastener to attach Hardyboard to the outside of a house. Both siding and 1X4's. Thanks

Hardy nails are called cement siding nails. They are galvanized with fairly broad heads. The length is like a #8, IIRC

IIRC, a pilot hole is required as well... can't just drive it through "virgin" as with real wood.
