How to shoot tethered with K-7?

Does anyone know how one can "shoot tethered" with a K-7? That is, what connection and settings does one choose to be able to connect the camera to the computer live and have the image immediately displayed on the large computer screen upon taking the picture in addition or instead of the camera's little back screen? (This is studio work on a tripod and a laptop standing on a stand nearby)

Thank you.

Based off the other thread that I read, Pentax dropped the ability to do it on newer Pentax DSLR's, the K-7 and K-x don't support this anymore. Only works with older models like the K20D, K200D, K10D, K100D, etc.
