Have a Questions about My D70

I have just purchased a D70 and am having difficulty with taking pictures using it with out the flash. I have tried all the normal things (ie: change the aperture and shutter speed) and none of that seems to be working? Is this how all digital cameras are or just the D70? I was also interested before in the Canon 20D. But bought the D70 becasue I already owned One Nikon body and Lens and was able to get two more lenes to use intherchanably. But I feel regretful about the Canon 20D after this. Is this normal for the D70 to have to use a flash all the time?

if you use it on auto mode then yes.
but in any of the priority modes, or in full manual, it should not pop up.

You would have had the same problem with the 20D, in automatic mode as Darwin said, the flash will popup whenever the camera's metering determines there is not enough light to acheive exposure, if you shoot in one of the programable, shutter priority, aperture priority, or manual mode should not popup, but if you are shooting in a situation where the auto mode always wants to pop the flash up, there is a chance that every shot you take in manual mode will be too dark unless you know how to compensate.
