What Hot Shoe Flashes Will Work? (Newbie Question)

Love the forum here, I don't post very often, but I read everyday.

anyway, I've been loving my new *ist DS for about a month now, and I swear I'll probably never go back to my old film SLRs (unless I begin feeling nostalgic). The thing is though I've used SLRs for years, I've never used a hot shoe flash, and I feel like it would be a valuable addition to my collection, only I don't know much about them. The main thing I'm wondering about is what flashes are compatible with the *ist D series. almost ever hot shoe I've seen has been the same, but are there differences in what flashes work in different cameras? I'd really love to get one and and learn by trying it in many different situations (something digital makes very easy as I am sure you all know). So any help would be very helpful at this point, I know you guys will rise to the challenge as per usual - so thanks in advance!

Don't know what to put in a signature yet, so just check out my B&W portfolio at http://www.xkwire.com/gsr/ist/index.html
