How do I setup infra-red remote?

I'm new to DSLRs and I can't find how to activate the infra-red wireless function on my D5. I can't find "Drive" mode mentioned by some and have even looked in the manual! I have a paper version and the electronic version. OK, so I only bought a cheapo remote on Fleabay but it's marked for Pentax use so it should work right?

I just want remote firing for wildlife photography.

Please can someone give me blow-by-blow instructions how to get to the relevant section of the menu?

Sorry people!! Mister Stupid has now left the building! I found the info on Page 88 of the manual - "Direct key setting items". The "Up" button gets "Drive Mode".
