Default sb-800 comander mode

i have a nikon d5000 and unlike the higher modles you can not use the camera as a commander for other flash guns, but ive bin told the sb-800 can be used as a commander unit, could i use the sb-800 used as a commander unit for D5000 ?? from what i can understand this is a possiblity but im not sure does any one know for sure ??????????? thanks

You can use the SB-800 or SB-900 as a commander for wireless firing the SB-600, SB-800, or SB-900.

But, a less expensive route would be to use the SU-800 (around $249 now at popular online vendors).
