Hold WB down until the top LCD display flashes "PRE"

I hate that step, especially if it's been a while since I last set custom WB and I've forgotten that's how it works. Nikon must believe that setting custom WB is an Extremely Dangerous Procedure (like formatting CF) which you have to be prevented from doing accidentally.

I, on the other hand like it. Very simple and very fast. There is also a bank of WB settings so that you can reuse the setting if you often shoot under the same light, like I have one for my living room. Pre 0 is for the instant WB setting and then Pre 1-4 the saved ones.
