How should one set up slave flashes?

random flash picture

I’ve been considering doing some product photography at Candelatech. I want to get that “brilliant white” background and try and escape the weird colors that come out in fluorescent light. Looking at lights online it would seem that the inexpensive way to proceed is to use a series of flashes on tripods.

Have YOU done this? Please share, eager to learn.
