Indoor techniques

I take a lot of photographs indoors in "bad" light.

I am having trouble making good photographs with my SIGMA DP2s in these kind of situations. Though I have a goal to try to have the aperture at around f5.0, I am often opening the aperture fully open at f2.8 and have a shutter-speed of around 1/20 or even shorter to keep the ISO low as possible.

I seldom use the built-in flash though, perhaps I should try to make use of it? Even though built in flashes always creates such a harsh light...

The results are of course as expected, blurry and/or underexposed photographs with very shallow depth of field. Any tips of making photographs indoors would be greatly appreciated?
