Pentax K1000 & Lenses

We currently own a Pentax K1000 camera. With that we have six various manufacturer lenses which work on this camera.

We want to purchase a digital Pentax SLR camera and don't know whether these six lenses will work on a new digital camera.
We have been informed that there may be issues with the lenses even fitting on a digital camera and also issues that even if they do fit
there are technical issues with exposure settings etc. We are basic camera users and really do not want to invest alot more money
than we already have on lenses to work with the new camera. Also, which new Pentax digital camera, the K-R or the K-X would be more
compatible with the lenses, if either?

Thank you.

In addition to all of the above, your lenses will mount equally well on any Pentax or Samsung K-mount DSLR.

EDIT: Oh wait a minute, you asked the same question one week ago, wasn't that answer good enough?
