As Gary mentioned above, Vivitar 285's are probably the most common/popular slave flashes for just about all brands.  They are cheap and offer a number of features for the price, and a decent guide number too.

I use Lumopro LP160's (, though they are a bit more pricey due to a slightly larger feature set (quad sync, etc.).

For triggers, I use Pocket Wizards, but they are probably the most pricey.  Many others use Paul Buff's Cybersyncs, and as Gary mentioned the Cactus v5's are popular as well.
