I've never done knitted with beads, but it looks cool and is certainly on my 'someday' list. I once saw a Knitty Gritty that had it and it looked fairly easy. Here's the link :

It looked basically liked you pre-threaded your beads on the yarn before you casted on and then moved the beads in place when the time came.

I'm sure I also saw another method where you somehow added them stitch before you knit. I think you used a crochet hook or something to do it. the advantage being you didn't need to pre-thread.
