K10D with AF360FGZ

I am trying to get my AF360FGZ to fire off camera wirelessly using the built in flash as a trigger. First I updated the camera's firmware to version 1.3 and then followed the instructions with the flash. I have got as far as the part which says:

"While pressing the camera's flash function button, turn the select dial until WHS appears."

I know I am being a bit dim here, but I have 2 questions:

1) Which is the flash function button on the K10D - I can only find the button which pops up the flash
2) I assume the 'select dial' is the dial on the flash, not the camera - am I correct?

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

With the camera on, press the Fn button on the rear panel. using the 4 way controller, select the flash, select wireless on the far right.
On the flash..... the on/off switch has a position for wireless....first position IIRC.

You also have to make sure the 360 is set for Slave and be sure the flash and camera are on the same channel (usually channel 1). You can set the K10d flash, in the custom menu, to fire either as a Main flash or as a controller. In the latter case, it will only fire a short pre-exposure burst for P-TTL and I believe it will fire another one during the exposure. Also note that the slave (360) has to be somewhere within the line of sight of the K10d control flash. Finally, unless you are using another 360 as the master (or similar), there will be no HSS. 1/180 will be the limit.
