I have light set like this:
light.Type = LightType.Point;
light.Range = 10000;
light.Diffuse = Color.White;

and material set like this:
surfaceMaterial = new Material();
surfaceMaterial.Ambient = Color.DarkGray;
surfaceMaterial.Specular = Color.White;
surfaceMaterial.Diffuse = Color.Brown;

And this material with this light renders white :( I tried plaing with DiffuseColor of material and light and only managed to render colors like Yellow,Red,Green,Blue. Everything else renders as white. Why ??

Make sure you zero out the materials structure. There is an emissive coomponent which might be overriding your other values. I sort of doubt this though.

Make sure you have lighting enabled...
SetRenderState(LIGHTING, TRUE);

And also make sure what you're lighting has vertex normals.

Good luck.
