I have a D90 (built in commander), a SB800, and a SB600.
I just purchased some pocketwizards 2nd hand and have been trying to research the web for info on what I need to set these up. I'm pretty sure I need some kind of PC cable for the SB800, and a universal flash adapter for the SB600 since it doesn't have a PC cable plug.
Here are my questions:

1. Do my flashes have to work in manual mode?
2. What adapters, cords, etc do I need to make both flashes remote?
3. Can I use a setup where my SB800 is on-camera and hooked up to the pocketwizard so the CLS will still work, or do I always have to set each flash unit on the unit itself?


I plan on getting a studio light someday, but for now I just want to master the different ways to setup the speedlights with the PW's. Any help is greatly appreciated. My head is spinning from trying to research on the internet.
