Pentax K-lenses on Olympus E500?

Hello. I am just at the beginning of my journey to DSLR. I have searched all over the Net, and I have decided to go for Pentax K100D Super, or K10D. However, I was very limited in budget, and I got, I believe, very good deal to buy Olympus E500 with two kit lenses (14-45mm and 40-150mm).

One of the reasons I wanted Pentax are K-lenses. I found on eBay some adapter (app. $30) which would allow me to mount Pentax K lenses on Olympus E500. I have to say that I plan to buy Pentax in near future (maybe K-r, K-x, or at least K10D), so I think buying K mount lenses and adapter is smart move. However, like I said, I am newbie, and any advice from you will be very appreciated.
