Welcome to Nikonians! Yes! If you have the camera in P,S,A, or M exposure mode in AF-A, AF-C, or AF-S modes you can choose the active AF point in Single Point, Dynamic Area, or 3D-Tracking AF Area modes. See pages 54-59 in the D5000 Users Manual. If you use Auto mode or any of the Vari-Program modes the camera will choose the active AF point. Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

Thank you Martin.
I do not own the camera yet. I know it can be done (I've read the user's manual). But it does not say if it can be done in the viewfinder instead of the LCD screen. I can't imagine the situation that every time you want to change the AF point, ISO or any other advanced settings you have to take your eyes of the viewfinder, move the camera off your face, flip open the LCD (if closed) and then recompose the picture again. If that is the case I'm buying Canon 500D instead.
So, repeating the question; is it possible to change any advanced camera settings without the use of LCD screen?

Yes! The active AF point will be highlighted in red when looking in the viewfinder. Yes, at the bottom of the viewfinder there is an LCD that displays All of the shooting information including Shutter Speed, Aperture,focus, flash ready light, etc...... Take a look at page 6 in the D5000 Users Manual as the Viewfinder display will indicate more than 20 perameters. All of the information that you will need is shown in the viewfinder.
