How do I set the 580EX / Camera for flash exposre only, I only want the subject not the background

The easiest way:
Flash on ETTL.
Camera in manual mode. Exposure time on 1/250. Now decrease the aperture (higher numbers) until the background goes dark. In daylight it becomes a bit more difficult because the flash will have to overpower sunlight.

Never mind, let's keep things in one single thread. You've also posted duplicate threats for guide numbers. Try and have one question answered after another.
