You need firmware 1.30 or later to be able to use lenses with SDM/DC/HSM focusing motors on the K10D.

Yep, just download from the link elliott provided, unzip the bin-file onto an SD card, switch on your camera while pressing the Menu button, confirm the update, sit back and wait.

Did it a few weeks ago.

Make sure the battery is fully charged or you have the ac adapter to use. If the battery conks out while upgrading, bad things happen to the camera and it will have to be sent in for repairs.
