I know the D5000 does not have Remote Commander mode but I am confused by the following statement on the Nikon website D5000 specifications page:

Nikon Creative Lighting System (CLS)
Advanced Wireless Lighting supported with built-in flash, SB-900, SB-800, or SU-800 as commander.

What does it exactly mean by 'Advanced Wireless Lighting supported with built-in flash'

If I have an SB-800 can I position it off camera and fire it using the built in flash?
