Thats one of the obstacles that comes with using manual lenses on a DSLR.  AF confirm chips just beep when you have focus on your AF point, but nothing more.  I use an M42 adapter without a AF confirm chip, and instead use focus peaking in ML and have always got perfect shots.  There has been talks on the forum in another thread about implementing a way to set the aperture value on the camera while using manual lenses so it will write it to the EXIF information of the file, but again that will only work if you remember to set it.  Honestly, you're better off writing it down, or shooting in a pattern that you will be able to remember.  For me, I don't really care to know what aperture it was taken at later on.. if it was a good shot, it's a good shot.
