What lens? An F mount is an F mount - but, depending on age, some functions may not work. As the D5100 has no lens motor, you need a motorized lens in order to focus automatically. This should help enormously: http://imaging.nikon.com/lineup/dslr/d5100/compatibility02.htm

If you are talking other company lenses, it becomes a real crap shot, adapter or not. Minolta to Nikon? WHY!!!! Even if possible.
