Check your earth straps ar in good clean condition, as it sounds like the car has an earthing prob, or live wire earthing out somewhere, the white smoke may be your starter lead or glowplug lead getting red hot, burning the insulation. Or failing that, it may be a starter fault

Where was the white smoke fro

Where was the white smoke from? Exhaust? And is it cold over there at the moment? If you answered yes to both, then its actually a blue/white smoke, and its a glowplug problem. One or more have failed, and are not preheating the fuel (well, combustion chamber actually). The clicking you hear from under the bonnet is the glowplug relay, trying to heat the glowplugs. Its under the small black plastic cover, on the right hand side, between the battery and the inner mudguard (wing) Get them checked at an auto electrician.
Once the motor has started, then, of course, there is no need for the relay to operate. One of the temp sensors near the thermostat housing detects this, and bypasses the relay.
