None of your options are good.
Mostly you will need to have everything in manual.
Su-4 is probably the easiest although there are third party stuff that will work.
The SB 600 will not work with the camera flash in manual -- only CLS.
The slaves that will fit on the SB 400 mostly will not work if the other units are in CLS mode (some exceptions but how reliable they are is a question)
My opinion -- get another SB 600.
The D40 does not do CLS so it will not fire the SB 600 remotely anyway.
There are some inexpensive radios on e-bay -- they may be your best solution (no personal experience with them)
Quantums and other quality radios are not cheap at $200 plus each.
