Color Schemes don't look right in CLI Vim


I was having a bit of trouble reading the dark red strings of Vim's default color scheme, so I decided to switch to a different one.

http://code.google.com/p/vimcolorsch...kboard.vim?r=2

http://files.werx.dk/wombat.vim

However, when I set my color schemes to these, not only do they not come out correctly (for example, comments are bright blue), but these 2 somehow come out looking exactly the same!

Am I doing something wrong, or are these colors restricted in the terminal so default colors are being chosen?
