Multiple Exposures with the K-x

Hey, just wondering - I was browsing through various cameras' features, and I came across the multiple exposures function on the K20D. I've done something similar manually using film cameras while in the darkroom by exposing one image onto the photographic paper, and then exposing another one ontop of that (they were the same thing, except the main object was absent in one of them; due to that main object having only half the exposure time on the paper, it appeared transparent or ghost-like). I was wondering if it's possible to do this in-camera or in post processing with a K-x, and if so, how? Thanks!

From the Pentax website:

Q:Can Multi-exposure images be made with the K-x? A:Yes.A Multi-exposure (multiple exposure) image can comprise from 2 to 9 shots.Note: Multi-exposure is not available when the mode dial is set to Movie, or when Cross processing, Digital Filter or HDR Capture is set.

As these sorts of features go, the only thing the K-x doesn't support AFAIK is Interval Shooting.
