Question emacs colors


I just installed mandrake linux and used emacs. But i don't like the default colors in it. The font size is also very small. I read the emacs tutorial but did not find any information on how to change these options. Can anyone help me with it?
Thanx

man o man is emacs a puzzle to configure!!! (for me and the average newbie at least)

have a look at your ~/.emacs file. there will be a bunch of cryptic lisp configuration stuff.

Try to find anything that deals w/ colors and comment that out, then startup emacs again and see if that does anything.

There's all kinds of documentation within emacs... just type info when you're there, and look around for what you want.

I'm not at home now, so I can't really elaborate, but when I get a chance I'll have a look around too.
