I am a new owner of the D50 and I have not had the opportunity to experiment with the camera yet...crazy thing called a "job" keeps getting in the way. I am looking for the best settings for indoor sports / action photos / no flash. Is WB Preset the best way to go?

Preset or manual WB might be the best choice if the lights are uniform. I'd shoot RAW if possible because it offers superior post processing abilities. Indoor sports require high ISO and a very fast lens if you want to freeze the action.

That's a tough question. In my limited experience you are going to need a long fast lens and you are going to have to use high ISO figures. Both of these come at a cost, financial for the lens and noise for high ISO settings.
