Anyone using an SB-24 or SB-28 on a D300 Succesfully?

I just bought a F5 from a member here in the Cafe(Thanks GoGo!), and there was a SB-24 included in the package. I thought that I was not going to be able to use it on the D300 before the sale, but now I know it can be used somewhat.

Ok, I know that there are serious limitations to using an older flash on the new digital bodies, but can someone please tell me what will I be able to use and how. I have no clue to how to use this thing....

Thanks in advance!

As far as I can recall, the only semi-intelligent mode you can only use the flash in is Auto; that is, it will decide when it's emitted enough light and will then shut off. The camera has no say in it.

It's a bit disappointing to not have any kind of TTL metering at all, seeing as they did back then with the film bodies. Results can vary, but auto mode can produce just fine results when matched with the ISO setting. I used my old SB-28 fine for a while with my D200 until I got an SB-800. Of course the manual flash and the strobe mode should work just fine.

Edit: oops, didn't see this was a repeated post.
