Welcome, to set raw capture, you will find it in the menu for Rec Mode. First you have to set File Format, then you set which Raw format you want PEF or DNG.

a more detailed answer if you need it:
go menu>rec.mode and select the format to PEF (pentax losless raw), or DNG (adobe RAW format)

Then fo menu>RAW button, and select whether you want the RAW button to make the camera take a RAW photo or take RAW+JPEG for each shot.

Then you can switch between the two with the raw button whenever

A manual is useful.

You probably got a paper copy with your camera as well.
