Subject: [Leica] Simple Question

I bought a 25mm SKOPAR this week (and LTM to bayonet
adapter) to use on my M3. I plan to test it this
weekend, but my question is that I need to use
hyperfocal distance since the lens does not engage the
focusing images (sorry for the non-technical names for
these things). Should this be? 
1) Are there different adapters for different focal
lengths in the M mount?
2) If I buy the 15MM Heliar will I have the same
problem? I realize that at 15mm, almost the whole
world will be in focus.
3) If I were to buy and use Leica SM lenses, would
they to have to be focused hyperfocally (sp?)?

thanks in advance.
