Using an M lens on DSLR

I have a Pentax K10D and Tokina AT-X 80-200/2.8. That lens does not have an "A" aperture setting. How can I use it on my K10D? Currently, I have I can click the green button and here the shutter click, but I can't actually take any photos.

You need to go to your custom menu, and look for "using aperture ring" set that to #2 Allowed, and leave it there, you should be good to go !!!
