Hexar AF Flash Q

Recently bought a Hexar AF adore it. Killer camera (do wish it was a 50mm but oh well).

I've been Googling around and reading the forums, but I can't figure out how to make this happen with the flash:

1. I set the aperture
2. Camera autofocuses and determines the shutter speed down to my minimum if necessary
3. Flash power adjusted accordingly to "make up the difference".

Is this possible? Or can I manually set aperture and shutter speed, and have the flash "make up the difference"?

I too use the Konica Flash where after almost 5 years of owning it, I still have no idea how to control it well. Each time i use it, i just switch the flash to Auto, F5,6 or 8, and let it go. opening up your Aperture seems to make the flash fire at full power. I simply use ISO100 most of the time and just...let it rip! LOL.
