Eterm has a "theme.cfg" file in usr/share/Eterm/themes/Eterm that you can modify (as root) you want to look for the line called "foreground"...it will be towards the top. and you should see it says "gray" after it...replace the gray with green, restart X and you should be good to go...at least thats how i got it to work
