Emacs Syntax highlight

I use a emacs editor in Fedora core 3 and make some VHDL/verilog code
by it. But my emacs can not give me a syntax highlight function so that I take much time to check the syntax error in my program. I wonder some
emacs configuration for implementing the syntax highlight function.

hi there,
what happens if you give
M-x global-font-lock-mode
do you have some weird emacs installation?
afaik, vhdl mode is included in the progmodes directory of emacs in a standard installation.
