AI/AIS on D80

I know that any ai/ais glass will be manual focus with no metering on my D80 but I was wondering if anyone has any experience using manual lenses on a Dxx class body. How hard is it to guess exposure? Is it easy enough to learn? I'm very interested in trying some of the old classics like the 105 f/2.5 and the 55 macros because they are relatively cheap and sound like a fun experiment. Man I really wish Dxx bodies could meter! Any thoughts or considerations are greatly appreciated.

Oh and does anyone know if the focus dot confirmation would still work?
