The standard method of this is to load the ANSI driver
(for example NANSI) and send appropriate ESCape sequences
to change the colors. People usually do that with PROMPT
settings in their config / autoexec but you can also use
the EECHO tool or other means of writing ESC sequences.

Because it basically works the same in all DOS versions,
you can search the web for any old MS DOS, DR DOS, PC
DOS, FreeDOS or other tutorial on the topic to find out
more about the possibilities :-) You can also read the
NANSI documentation (nansi.doc or the HTMLHELP for it).
With FreeDOS EDIT, you can also insert the ESC character
(hex 0x1b, decimal 27) directly into ECHO lines in your
autoexec. But as said, the usual method is the PROMPT.

Regards, Eric
