[sdiy] white noise from resistor?

I'm looking for a simple white noise source.
The usual reverse breakdown transistor junction has a problem - first, you
need a fairly high voltage, and more importantly, level and quality varies
between transistors.
In these days of very low leakage & high input impedance op amps, could I
get by with just amplifying the thermal noise of a high value resistor?
I know some of the EEs here can set me straight on this one..
