Use of K-mount Vivitar macrolens on ist DL AF Pentax

I have recently obtained a Pentax istDL AF body and wish to use my older Vivitar (non-AF) K-mount 55mm 1:2.8 macrolens on the new digital camera. Any hope of being able to make it function in a manual mode so i can avoid having to purchase a totally new macrolens? Many thanks! - Sookie

I recently saw this article linked here, so... K100D (Super) Pictorial guide to using manual lenses [imgs] [Page 1]: Pentax SLR Talk Forum: Digital Photography Review

Should be similar menu set up for the DL.
