ISO in Manual Mode

I have just switched over to shooting manual with my Pentax K10D. I normally shoor AV or TV. What I liked in these modes was I could see and set the ISO value. Can I have the ISO displayed in the viewfinder when in M Mode. I have read the book inside out but cant find it.Maybe I should just set an ISO warning.Hope someone can help me out.

I believe you'll find ISO being displayed on depressing the OK button, both in viewfinder and the LCD display.

Yep. If you have the latest firmware on your K10D, v1.3, then you can display ISO instead of shots remaining by pressing the OK button at the back. If you want to change ISO, just press and hold the OK button, and turn the front e-dial. In modes where there is auto ISO, you can go to auto ISO by pressing and holding the OK button, and then pressing the green button.

I loved that I could configure my K10D to select the aperture with the rear wheel and the ISO with the front wheel (in Av mode)

Can't do that with my current camera
