Problems with my first Truck

As the title states, I'm having problems with my truck. It is a 1995 Chevy K2500 6.5 turbo diesel w/ 144,000 miles. My problem is that it is hard to start and is blowing lots of white smoke.
After reading some other forum sites I think my problem is my glow plug controller/solenoid.(any other ideas would be great).
So, that leads me to my question. What is a glow plug controller/solenoid and where is it?

Ok thanks
How do I check the glow plugs?
Thanks for all of the reply's guys. The reason why it was hard to start is because the batteries were low. Yesterday i tried to start it and it would hardly turn over. So I grabbed my jumper box, hooked it up, and it started just fine. I let it sit there and run for a while, to charge the batteries. I still have no idea why it was smoking so much more than normal. Once I get license on it, Ill fill it up and add some injector cleaner. Right now I'm not to worried about it because it seems to be fine.
