    Just set your build-in flash to commander mode with flash off like what mybearbrick said, and tape 2 pcs of developed unexposed E6 (slide) film onto your build-in flash. The first will reduce the trigger flash power to minimum, while the second will filter off the light except leaving IR to trigger the remote flash.

    Another alternative would be to use the Nikon SG-3IR. It's a little IR filter device mounted in the accessory shoe of the cam to filter out the on-board flash. Note, it's for bodies with built in flash commanders e.g. D70,D80,D200. Hence I believe there's not a need for the SU-800 unless absolutely necessary.

    This won't happen as long as the procedures given in the manual are followed (letting the flash rest after certain number of flashes, etc). Remember your flash body is made of plastic, if it could the plastic would have melted long time ago.
