Pancake 'M' 40mm Wont Function K10D

I am a bit bummed out at the moment having tried all of the variables in trying to get my 'new' 40mm SMC 'M' Pancake to work on my K10D. I have gone through all of the options suggested by the manual to no avail.

It looks like 'M Mode' is the only way this lens will function, but that wont work either. Is there something internal in the body or the lens that I need to hack?

I found the option in the control panel under "C" to permit the usage of the aperture
