Pentax M 50mm and BI Flash?

Just got a Pentax M 50mm f2.0 and really like it. Is there a way to use the built in flash with a totally manual lens? I looked through the manual and the magic lantern guide but I couldn't find anything addressing this subject.

Just manually set your aperture and use the camera in M mode. You could use the chart off the back of an AF16 to check what aperture to use - the GN's are almost the same.
