AI Servo Focus Tracking

Does the K10 (or other pentax models) have a AI Servo Focus Tracking like Canon?
I was reading this excellent article about getting tack sharp images, and it talks about this (about 1/2 way down the page) Advanced Tips for Tack Sharp Images

thanks

There's Continuous AF in the K10D. It's nowhere as good as the AI Servo or even Continuous AF in the K-7 and K-5. The king of continuous tracking though is Nikon's 3D focus tracking system, though.

is there a setting that lets you to continue to shoot without pausing to focus (using the back focus button on continuous focus)

I have used the back focus button in sport photography (indoor volleyball) but can't remember if a setting let me shoot as it was focusing without locking into focus

thanks

af-c lets you shoot w/o being in focus (there's also a new setting on the k-5 that won't let you release the shutter unless it's in focus)
