White smoke is generally from coolant leaking into the combustion chamber, or if it's and automatic trans it could be a bad vacuum modulator pulling trans fluid into the intake.

If its black smoke it's to rich a fuel mixture.
If it's blue or lite blue smoke, I would definitely check for a valve guide or seal problem first like bumpstick suggested, then check the rings by a leak down test.
