d5000 remote for sb600?

Hi everyone,

I'm very new with a d5000 which I'm trying to learn all that I can about. (this is my first DSLR. I'm now trying to figure out more about flash, as the lighting in my home is less than Ideal. Mostly kids and trying to work out very elementary portraits of some kind.

In the Nikon D5000 Digital Field Guide (J.Dennis Thomas) it says on page 127 in paragraph 6 "The D5000's built-in flash can act as a commander". How would this be done? I have the SB600 and was trying to figure out how to get my D5000 to fire it remotely. From this it seem like I should be able to. Any thoughts?

Kristy
