roller cam in an non roller block..is it possible?

I have in my posession a 1993 K motor out of a K1500 Suburban that I am building to put in my 1969 Nova. My question is I snagged a freebie from a Chevy dealership I was working at in the form of a cam,rocker spring and accessories. Part #12480002 in the GM performance parts division. Will I be able to put this cam in my block using roller lifters and retainers? The block originally had flat tappet lifters. Or will I have to get some retro kit. I also have an R motor block (Vortec) laying around. Should I use the R motor instead of the K motor? Any help here will be greatly appreciated. I am building this motor out of used parts and a very squeaky budget,and I got the cam and 1.6 rockers for free so im anxious to use them.

Thanx all...
