Yes,

Just buy a shoe adapter with a PC socket for your "slave" flash

Something ike this :

Plug the Cactus trigger in the PC socket of your camera and your "master flash" on the shoe and it works (with the "slave" flash in manual mode of course), even in E-ttl

I have not the 430 EX but a few 580's, as other non brand's camera and it works.

No reasons it would not work with a 430.

I have a quick question. I have a canon 430 EX and Cactus Trigger
(ebay wireless trigger). I've been playing around with off-camera
lighting with the Cactus Trigger. My sister has a 430 EX flash also.
Is there a device, cord, splitter or something that will allow my
camera to trigger my 430EX flash on-camera e-TTL and trigger my
cactus trigger at the same time to trigger my sisters 430 EX off
camera in manual mode (of course aside from a 580 EX or ST-02)?
Thanks in advance.
