Talking FC3 install and X11

Hello all:
I am happy to say that I just installed FC3 on a Dell Optiplex GX270 with 2 120 GB HDs and 2 GB RAM, NV34 video card running XP Pro. I installed GRUB to the MBR and everything went well. XP is still there and FC3 is running just fine.

I have had some issues with the xterm. I know it is petty but I really like yellow text and black background. I copied over my .Xdefaults file from my Mac and the colors did not change.

Turns out (can't find the post) I had to add the following command to /etc/X11/gdm/Presession/Defaults

xrdb /home/<username>/.Xdefaults

This fixed the color scheme permanently. Now te only problem is the with color -ls the blue highlight (selected text) covers the blue directory text. This doesn't happen with the X11 on my Mac. Any ideas?
