choose a vim color scheme from /usr/share/vim/vim63/colors. copy it to a new name, and edit to suit your needs.

then create a file called ~/.vim/.vimrc, and add these lines:
syntax on
:colorscheme <yourfile> (without the .vim extension).

or, to make it global, edit /etc/vimrc to include those options.
