Trying, unsuccessfully to use the built in flash as the master and the sb-800 as the slave.. Setting sb to su-4 and keeping distance between both as recommended . Sometimes built in will trigger the sb-800 but most of the time I get nothing.. Suggestions appreciated..

You need to turn the built in flash to manual. The D-TTL preflashes can cause the SB800 to fire prematurely.
That is assuming it's firing and then not showing up in the photo.
Is the SB800 going to standby mode perhaps. It would not wake up fast enough to trigger the flash.
