Trying to massage numbers to render all the variables the same is a fool's errand.

It's quite easy with digital: apply the crop factor in stops to both f-stop and ISO.

If DOF matters, you might use a DOF calculator -- which will give you get the exact same answer as using the crop factor  (assuming same distance, AOV, output size) . If noise vs. shutterspeed matters, you (or the camera) will end up adjusting ISO to get the same result.
