Hi  yall!

I too, would like to see similar colours to what I used to, when I was
running Mandrake.  For example, you'd get different file types shown in
different colours (when doing "ls") & even in vi you'd get code coloured
in a nice & helpful fashion.  Editing HTML was a joy!

My favoured shell is zsh (it's what we use at work, so I am sticking
with it) & I've searched for some .zshrc examples but not had any great
joy I'm afraid.

Please can somebody point me in the right direction?

Thanks ;-)

worrying...  Eeek!)



Obviously, not all of these are usefull.  I'm learning stuff though :-)
