Having finally recieved my Rebel XT, I've set out in the last 3 days to learn how to use it. I played with it a bit today, and this is a couple of the indoor shots I took...

Are they too much yellow or is my screen not calibrated?

If you want to try it manually,

Add a curves adjustment layer
Switch to the red channel (drop down box)
Add a point in the middle and drag it to the bottom right corner until the greens look right (removing reds)
Switch to green channel
Drag a center point slightly toward the top-left corner to pop the greens a bit more.
Switch to blue channel
Drag a center point slightly toward the bottom right corner.

Red - Input:154 Output:81
Green - Input:122 Output:134
Blue - Input:126 Output:105
That's a starting point anyway.

Less control... try Image>Adjustment>Variations.
Then just keep clicking the picture around the edges that looks best balanced.
Change closer to fine for "fine tuning"

You can also try Auto Colour (yikes!)
