PC port on flash to trigger studio strobe? Is it possible?

I had one thought, but I doubt it will work. Since my manual flash has a PC port and a built in optical trigger, would it be possible to connect the flash PC port to a Speedotron PC port, and just use the flash as an optical slave. I could then use the pop-up flash on my camera at 1/128 to trigger the manual flash, which would in turn trigger the Speedotron pack. I assume the PC port is a one way street though, so this probably wouldn't work, would it?

The whole reason for this is that my DSLR doesn't have a PC sync port, I don't have radio triggers, and none of the local stores carry a hotshoe/PC sync port adapter.
