You'll have to use FumeFX, Afterburn or Pyrocluster , read op on these.

Pete Draper has a tutorial on this on his site, in the education section.

His book Deconstructing the Elements, has detailed steps to recreate different forms of smoke. There all created with plain vanilla max ie without additional plug ins or renderers.

This is also well worth a read too, its clouds but I think you could apply it to smoke.

There is also a tutorial that accompanies 3dsmax on how to create cigarette smoke.
This is the method I used for creating the gases in this animation.
