If it's one that lacks the mechanics/electronics for AF and and aperture communication, then you basically need to treat this like any other fully manual lens and read the instructions on how to use fully manual lenses on a DSLR. Google for "pictorial guide manual lens Pentax" to find the thread on dpreview with Sean Nelson's excellent writeup.
