Canon 5DMKII / 430EX / 580EX Question

I have what seems like an easy question but yet I can't find a straightforward answer anywhere... unless i just don't understand the answer!

I have a 5D MkII and I want to use my 580EX flash and a 430EX flash that I am about to buy, both off-camera. I just want to be able to set them up around a room or outdoors, neither of them actually on my camera but sync'ed to go off with the shutter. I am completely brand new to this, and even just to using flash - which is probably why I don't really 'get' the answers I've gotten so far. I guess I need it dumbed down for me?

I only have a budget of a few hundred dollars.

What's the easiest and cheapest way to make this happen?

Thank you in advance for any help.
