The fuses are spares.
I don't think there's a PC socket on the K10D so there's two ways to trigger the lights:

You connect the synch cable to one of the flashes through an adapter attached to your hotshoe. This is an example .

Alternatively, use a wireless trigger. Choices range from the pocket wizard to a cheapy from Ebay.

You need only trigger one of the Venus heads as they have built-in light cells to trigger the other head.
