Use the third tutorial on the Pentaxdslr site.

I keep forgetting to set the wireless mode using the function button, check that.

My 360 and K10D work fine in wireless,.

First of all, small tips:
1) Mount flash on-to camera. Select desired Channel on flash.
2) Select in camera menu Wireless-Flash (Fn->Down->W)
3) Once you've OK, you'll see CH # on top LCD panel - that is you channel number
4) dismount flash from camera. Set it to Wireless mode and Slave 1 (Slave 2 is for manual wireless, and Slave 1 is for P-TTL wireless. This can be accessed by holding LIGHT button on flash)
5) In your camera go to "Custom Setting" -> "Flash in Wireless Mode" (bottom of the list).
1 - means that built-in camera flash will act like Master flash, 2 - for Control only mode.

That's it
It is all quite easy.

If you can't, there is still the possibility to buy a long wire, or maybe use a radio trigger or other way.
