Assuming it is a Manual lens without 'A' on it's Aperture ring, you need to change the settings in the menu for 'Use Apertrure Ring' to 'Permitted'.

Then set the Aperture you need and press the Green Button to set Shutter in 'M' mode.

Read the manual, as it gives you in detail description on using the 'Green' button

You need to go into the Menu, probably under the Custom settings, and find the Using Aperture Ring setting and set it to Permitted. I'm not exactly sure where it is on the K200D, but I doubt it's much different than the K10D.
