No P-TTL means no easy mode (P) shooting, but as you said the flash should work just like any other auto flash.

They will work great together, the Yongnuo in S1 mode will trigger optically from the SB-24. The only thing is you'll probably want the SB-24 in manual mode if you're using the Yongnuo too, auto mode with multiple flashes doesn't work very well in my experience.
