I have an N80 and it has trap focus capability. If you are interested in knowing more about this cool feature, see the post by BJ in the F100 section, same topic heading. Anyways, in a nut shell, set your program 11 to #4, the af lens to single servo. Say you want to take a picture a butterfly on a flower. Prefocus on the flower. Set your f stop to about f/16. Move back a hair and then when a butterfly lands on that flower move slowly towards the butterfly while you are depressing the shutter. When the butterfly comes into focus the camera will fire. Experiment without film to see what works for you. This will also work with dynamic focus too so that all focusing points will activate the shutter.

Have fun.
