Noob question: Aperture ring on lens

Hi, quick simple question: If I get an older pre-AFS lens that isn't "gelded", do I HAVE to use the aperture ring to set the aperture size on my D5000? Or will my camera take care of it? How does that work if I have to use the ring, if I'm in "P" mode, will the camera act like it's in "A" mode?

Thanks!
