G1 and external flash?

I plan on getting a G1. Before I do, I've a few questions regarding the use of external flash:

Can I use any 3rd party external flash other than Canon's? I can manually set the external flash, but other than that, would I have any problem?

If I have some non-Canon external flash setup, the build-in flash is turned off automatically, right? Or is this a setting I need to change in the camera?

If I set flash off in the camera, would the external flash attached be turned off, or does this just affect the internal flash only?

Thanks.
