You have to use the built-in flash to trigger a slave unless you attach a wireless trigger device. You first have to set the built-in flash to "commander" mode using custom menu setting e3 and set the mode to "--". Using this setting the flash will fire a series of pre-flashes to communicate with the slave(s).The camera setup is explained in the manual on pg 303. You will also have to set your slave flash to work in commander mode, refer to your specific flashes manual for this information. I went through this the other day and setting up the camera took much less time than figuring out how to configure my SB600.
