Default Newbie needs help taking Hockey Arena shots

Just bought a Pentax Optio 555 and loving it.

I borrowed a friends Nikon 5000 for awhile and found it too intimidating for a smart computer guy but... newbie photographer.

Anyways, I've had great results inside and outside with the 555 but white ice and average flourescent lighting inside hockey arenas is giving me problems.

I'd like to set a USER setting especially for these shots once I find the magic settings.

Has someone come up with the right combination of setting for this enviroment?

Note: I have double posted this question in Newbiew & Pentax hoping for a general or exact answer.

Thank you in advance.

Try using a custom white balance with an 18% gray card, or a white card (if your camera has a custom white balance capability).
