Default Turning flash off on Rebel XT

Hi, Pretty simple question so please bear with me. I'm comming from a Canon G5.

How do I turn off the on camera flash? Can this be done in any mode?

I'm asking this because on my G5 i can turn my flash on,off,red eye in any mode.

I've checked and read the manual on the flash pages (i'll re-look over them again) but I can't seem to find it

help?

thank-you in advance

Raymond

I don't have an XT and I have never shot in green box mode as far as I can remember so take this advice or leave it

Tur the camera to P and the flash will not operate unless you pop it up yourself and the camera will select the TV and AV values for you.

In the creative modes just depress the flash and it will be inactive (if you need the flash in these modes use the button above the lens release to eject the flash). In the following modes: Landscape, Sport, and Flash Off will not use flash. At least thats how I understand it.
