Questions about installing baseboards

I am getting ready to install new baseboards.  The baseboards I have chosen are 5 1/2 inches tall and 1/2 inch thick.  They are just flat baseboards -- no curved tops or anything.  I have found some at a good price that are pine boards - not MDF.  I am going to try and use a finish nailer to attach them to the walls.  Is there a possibility the finish nailer will splt the wood?  I would definitely not like to pre-drill them.  Does anyone know if a finish nailer will give me problems with 1/2 inch thick pine boards?  And perhaps someone can sugges what size nails I should use?  Thanks for any suggestions.
