You may want to go into more detail on what you're asking and where you're running into issues.

Your camera has settings to use wireless, and you can either use the built in flash to control an external flash, or mount one of those on the camera and use it to control another one.

I think you have to briefly mount a flash in the camera's hotshoe and do something in the menus in order to set each flash up for communication with the camera, too. I don't own any of these flash units, so I don't know the procedure.

It's my understanding that some new features were added to the HVL-F58AM for better ratio control, too. So, there may be some additional settings for it that can come in handy.

Some of our KM or Sony dSLR owners using wireless may be able to help out. So, I'll move this thread down to our Konica Minolta / Sony Alpha dSLR Forum, where they are more likely to see it.

I regularly use my 3600HS flash wirelessly. Just set the camera and flash to wireless and the pop-up does the magic. I've never used two off camera flashes though. You may want to check out Gary Friedmans a700 book. He explains the wireless flash function in detail.
