I see this feature a lot in various pages, when you need to enter another level of information. It is basically a popup in the center that covers about 80% of the page and casts an opaque background over the rest of the screen. When you click OK or whatever it goes away.

Is this built in or will I have to use something like the jQuery ShadowBox add on to get it going?

It is built-in and is in the Javascript Framework of SharePoint. You can start from this good blog post!

Enjoy the new Dialog Framework!
