Flooring screws can help to prevent squeaky boards and eliminate the need for glues and nails. Floor screws also remove the need for any pre-drilling allowing you to complete the job quickly without fuss.
You'll want the screw to go about an inch past the plywood into the joist or underlying layer beneath it. So if your subfloor is 3/4 of an inch thick, any screw about 1 3/4 inches long will do the trick. If the plywood subfloor you're placing is 5/8 of an inch thick, you need a screw about 1 5/8 inches long.
