Black and white is all I use. White can be made into any color you want by putting the appropriate gels over the background lights.
As far as chromakey, I just use the white for that. Be sure to light it evenly and put the model far enough forward to avoid spill from the background onto the subject. You can then do near perfect knockouts of the subject from the background. Here is an example (click for full size example):
