I am new in DSLR and have recently bought a D80 and SB600.

I am learning to shoot in M mode and when I meter, I was taught to look at the light meter to gauge my exposure settings.

However when I am shooting indoors, (without the SB600) using a particular setting (ie 1/100 and f/5), the light meter shows that I am underexposing my shot and the flash sign will start blinking. After I attach the SB 600 and switch it on, using the same settings, I discover that despite the SB 600, the light meter still shows that I am underexposing my shot.

Having said that, the picture that I frame will not be that underexposed.

Is this what iTTL means? How then does one learn to meter with the SB600 on board?

I shoot using Centred Metering and for in doors, use iTTL.

I apreciate your comments and opinions in this matter.
