I think it's saying "FEE". If so, turn the aperture ring on the lens to its smallest opening (largest f/number) and lock it. You can control the aperture from the camera body, the same was as on a lens without an aperture ring.
Yes and no. I assume the lens is of more or less the same vintage as the N75? If so, the lens will fit onto the D5000. All of the camera's exposure and metering modes will work properly. However the lens lacks an interal focus motor and thus will not autofocus on the D5000. You can focus manually, and the green focus indicator in the viewfinder will continue to work.
Make sure the lens is set on the largest aperture number and locked to that setting. The camea if it cannot control the aperture will display ERR and lockup the camera until it can control the aperture. Take the lens off and make sure to lock it onto the camera so you can hear the locking pin click. The ERR is a lens (wrong series lens if you changed lenses) or the lens is not locked on correctly, or the aperture is not set correctly. After this it is a repair issue.
You didn't specify when the message appears or exactly what it says, so I will take a stab at it. If it is the Err message and it happens as soon as you turn on the camera, chances may be high that the lens you have on it is not set to its smallest aperture opening (ie 22). The camera can't control the automatic exposure settings correctly unless the mounted lens is shut down to its smallest aperture
Here's a link to the N75 / F75 user guide. The troubleshooting section / lens compatibility area might point to the problem. If the viewfinder is dark, the mirror is likely stuck in the UP position. This is usually due to a lens compatibilty issue, or the fact that the lens is not set to its smallest aperture (ie 22). The camera needs that to control the full range of aperture openings
Sounds like a lens compatibility issue. Ensure that you have a compatible lens mounted first (see user guide) and then ensure it is set to its smalles t aperture (F22 for example), otherwise the shutter will freeze and the Error will be displayed.
The camera requires you to set your lens aperture at the minimum setting, usually orange coloured. I.E. f22 f32. Nikons control the aperture through the camera, not setting the ring manually like old style SLR's
