lens compatibility with K-X

Just bought a Pentax K-X and was discussing it with my dad. Both he and my grandfather have old Minolta cameras with several lenses that I'm wondering if they will work with my K-X and if they will require adapters. Is there a chart somewhere that will show all lenses that are compatible with pentax cameras and if they require adapters? I searched and couldn't find one. Maybe I didn't search hard enough. Also, any opinions on the quality of these lenses would be much appreciated.

Minolta 50mm f1.7
Minolta 100-200mm 4.5
Sigma 70-210mm f4.5

It's really quite simple:

Lens made for Pentax: will work (adapters needed for screwmount, as opposed to K-mount)
Lenses made for other brands: will not work
