I have a Nikon 105mm 1:2.8 serial #200964. I'm

Nikon makes or has made several different 105mm 1:2.8 lenses, including an AF-S model and an AF-D model, as well as older manual-focus varieties.
Somewhere on the lens it will say "Nikon" or "Nikkor" along with "105mm" and "1:2.8". There should be additional text along with that. Your best bet is to include all of that in your description of the lens.

Why wont my Nikon af nikkor 70-300mm G lens autofocus its self with my D5000 camera

The D5000 does not have a focus motor in the body, relying on the lens to have one. The old 70-300mm G lens does not have a focus motor, relying on the camera to have one. Thus, this combination will not autofocus.
The newer 70-300mm AF-S G lens, as well as the even newer 70-300mm VR AF-S lens, do have the autofocus motor and thus will autofocus on the D5000.

I recently obtained a used Quantaray for Nikon 500mm f8 f/8 Mirror lens. I have a Nikon d3000 and I am not sure how to attach it to my camera.

For Nikon AF and manual focus SLRs. The compatible T Mount System makes it possible to use most any single lens reflex camera in combination with various front camera attachments such as telescopes, mirror lenses and slide duplicators. The T Mount is a metal connector that screws onto the compatible front attachment and allows this combination to be coupled to the SLR camera lens mount.

Tamron makes lenses with a variety of mounts. Assuming the lens has a Nikon mount, then it is fully compatible with the D200.

Hi. Is the Nikon AF Nikkor 20-35mm 1:2.8D made for Nikon's digital cameras? Is it compatible with their whole line or just some? Thanks

No. The lens will work with every Nikon film or digital SLR made in the past three decades or so, though of course the autofocus won't work on older cameras that don't support AF.

Auto focusing problem

The D40 will only autofocus with the Nikkor AF-S lens...look for the AF-S in the lens title. For 3rd party lens, only SIGMA with the USM title will autofocus.

To use the will need to use the "Manual" mode of the camera.
