    May I ask what camera are you using? If you are using D80, D90, D200, D300, D700 or D3, you can trigger your SB800 off camera using the built-in flash. If you are using D40, D40x or D60, you will need another extra flash because your SB800 will be mounted into your camera and used as a commander to trigger other flash that are not mounted on a camera. There is a thread in CS that talks in detail about this: http://www.clubsnap.com/forums/showthread.php?t=362747. Kenrockwell also talks about that in his website: http://www.kenrockwell.com/nikon/ittlslave.htm
