Though I thought several distributions came with a 'colorizer' built in?

Such as, to get colored directory listings under Red Hat, Mandrake, etc., use

* ls -color

To get this all the time, add

* alias ls='ls -color=auto'

to .bashrc. The following command

* alias ls='ls -Fskb -color=auto'

will give directory listings in color, with file sizes in kilobytes, and append a character to the file to indicate its type.
