I know older lenses can be used with D100s. But where does it fall on the aiconversions.com body/lens compatibility chart? In the D1s, F100, N90 group or with the N65, N80, N60 group? Also can someone remind me what you lose when the lens lens is AF, but not D or G?

If it's not an AF lens or the 500 f/4P, f/2.8P or the PC 85 f/2.8P, the meter won't work. Period. It just doesn't register. But with the D100 you can easily see the image and histogram, so if you're shooting something fairly static, that might not be so bad.
If it's not AI or AI-modified, I wouldn't try attaching the lens to a D-anything.
If you use a non-D lens, you lose the 3-D metering. For ambient light I'd say this is no real loss at all. For flash you're better off with it, but realisitcally you probably won't notice the difference.
If it's not a G lens you gain, in my opinion, in that you have an aperture ring on the lens.
Does that help?
