Default White porcelain look

I notice that a lot of modellers (usually the really good ones) display their work in a White porcelain look. Can anyone out there tell/show me how to set up so that my models display this way, instead of the horrible dark grey default?
I'd like to share a revelation that I've had during my time here. It came to me when I tried to classify your species. I realized that you're not actually mammals. Every mammal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with the surrounding environment, but you humans do not. You move to an area, and you multiply, and multiply, until every natural resource is consumed. The only way you can survive is to spread to another area. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. A virus. Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet, you are a plague, and we are the cure.

I'm not entirely sure, but some also might be lit with GI_Joe to achieve something along those lines as well. Might try downloading it to test it out if you really want to. It's a good thing to have anyway.

yeah it's just a GI (light dome) rig with a normal grey lambert on it. GI_Joe is the one that most people use.
