Shooting in auto is only 400 ISO that I don't want. I like 100 ISO. What is the next step for a begiiner after auto mode.

you could actually even try the M mode. This gives you control over the shutter/aperature and ISO. It wont take you long to figure out their relationships and get good photos. To change the shutter, just roll the wheel. To change the aperature, hold the AV (contrast) button and roll the wheel.

Like NHL said, the P mode is great to start off with and doesnt automatically pop up the flash, which in AUTO become really annoying.

You should also familiarize yourself with Av (aperture priority) mode. That way you will learn depth of field (DOF)
