K10D: Less Noise at 6MP?

Just got the K10D. Can anyone tell me if I shoot with 6MP, will the noise level be equivalent to a native 6MP camera (given all else equal)? Or is the noise level simply hardwired into the construction of a higher-density sensor?

Shooting at 6mp will only give you smaller file sizes, not less noise.
