wireless flash help

Hey everyone,

I have a Sony a700 and just got a hvl-43am flash. To my dismay I found out that the pop up flash is the only way to trigger the hvl-43am when it is off camera and that it must go off to do so. Does anyone know if there is another way to get around this optic trigger? If i really don't want any light coming from the camera, is there a way to block it and still trigger the slave? Finally, how much have you found the pop up affects the picture?

Thanks!
