That is correct, Jim-

When the SB-900 is used in the commander Mode, the SB-600 can become a slave flash unit.

Right, the SB-800 or SB-600 can be used as a master.

You can also use a Nikon SU-800 Wireless Commander. It looks like it's selling for around $254.95 now now. You can see more about it here:
