Walls for flood prone basement

We are purchasing a home in a food zone that has had 3 feet of water in the basement on 2 occasions plus hurricane Irene which royally messed up the basement and first floor. I am wondering what types of materials to use to cover the basement walls with. I'm thinking of using metal studs and then covering with paneling which would be cheap to rip out and replace if need be. Not to mention having a second sump pump installed. The floor I am going to just cover with area rugs since they already painted the floor and it seems like staining is out of the question now.
