new and needing help.

I have a Km , and recently bought a Tokina RMC 28mm f2.8 and Im having a little problem getting the manual lense to work with the DSLR body.

I found this link Using old Pentax manual lenses and M42 lenses on Pentax DSLR (with images) | Vietnam - Yours to Discover but I cant find the settings it is refering to.

I f anyone could help with how to get the Km to work with the manual lense it would be appreciated.

Maybe this link in the beginner's corner is better. Follow the link in the first post. If I remember correctly, it's based on a K200D. Can't check as site seems to be down at the moment.

On a K100 I think it's those two if I remember correctly (might apply to Km as well):
1) AE-L button on M exprs; this replaces the green button
2) Using aperture ring
