Yes to your original question - can use.

Bear in mind that your master flash (the one that triggers all the others) CANNOT be a digital unit synced to your cam unless your master set-up does not have a pre-flash, or you can switch off or bypass the pre-flash.

Reason being that the pre-flash which most DSLRs use to pre-determine correct exposure will trigger off all your slaved units before the shutter opens.

The other alternative is to use digital-ready optical slaves, or to use an analog master.
