M42 Preset lenses on a DSLR

Hello,
I am a complete novice in the use of a DSLR.and if you can bear with me I am looking for some guidance.
I have a set of three good preset M42 lenses and as my consumption of film is now very sparse,it occurs to me that if I bought a fairly simple Pentax DSLR,probably second hand to get me going,these lense could be of great use once more.

I am aware that suitable adaptors are available,but I have heard that whilst manual functions are available on some DSLR models to enable the use of my lenses,there could be difficulties in obtaining correct exposure.

I would be very grateful if you could give me the benefit of any advice on this,and possibly also indicate which Pentax DSLR might be the most suitable to get me underway.

Many thanks from Wales over in the UK:)

Brian.

Thanks to everyone for taking the time to reply and offer advice.My general conclusion of all the comments leads me to feel confident in using the lenses.
After always using manual focus and exposure with my SLR's,plus a fair amount of time squinting through the viewfinders of some 'golden oldy'rangefinders,I'm pretty sure that I should be able to make them work.I shall have to start wading through the various DSLR models,although I have to say that my needs are only modest,no need for too many 'never to be used' menu options.;)
Cheers,
Brian

My only digital photography experience has been with a Canon 4MP point and shoot.However I am looking into moving on to a DSLR and I believe that my Pentax M,K mount manual lenses can be used with some of the Pentax DSLR models.I would be very grateful if someone could confirm this,and identify the Pentax models concerned,so that I can investigate further.

Thanks,and Good Morning from Wales.:D

Just a note to introduce myself.I was a frequent user of Takumar screwmount lenses with my Practicas in the 80's and 90's.I've now set myself up with a K1000 and a 50mm F2,plus a 75-150M zoom,and hope to learn some more:D

It's good to be joining you,
Brian.
