How do I set white as my background in Photoshop CS4?

Question by Jeff: How do I set white as my background in Photoshop CS4?
So I just purchased Photoshop CS4 extended (vista X64) and when I create a new page it comes up in a very light tan color. Even in the color tab the white looks kind of tan even though the RGB settings are all the way to the right (at 255 each). I know that my monitor displays white because in all of the tool drop down boxes the background is perfectly white.

the background colour is separate from rgb color in layers,
check preferences, for new file and page setup,
