Metering issue with old AI lenses on new AF SLRs

Good Morning:

I've read in a number of places information along the lines of "don't bother getting old manual lenses for new dslr's because you lose most of the new functions" etc. etc. etc.

But what if you want to do it anyway, because there are some fantastic lenses available that us mortals can afford more readily than the same quality lens in the new AF VR version.

The question is, if the metering capability is lost with the new body, what do you have to do (and know or have) in order to use a lens like that anyway?

Thanks in advance,
Cynthia
