How do you guys set the Custom White Balance on the Digital Rebel? I simply took a piece of white printing paper and took photo of it, then used it as the image to set the custom white balance. How do you guys do it?

That's prolly the easiest of ways to do it.

I prefer to use an 18% grey card. Sometimes when I use a white piece of paper to wb, I get funky colors, but that's mostly cause my wife buys the recycled printing paper, so it's grey but not 18%.

What I do is use my grey backdrop, take a pic of the corner on the floor and set it that way.

Just make sure the paper is true white and you're good to go!
