Question BASH colours in SSH term

Hey all!

Quick question, using Fedora core 2 (I think) and I need to change the font colours when connecting to a terminal session over SSH. For example, I want the name of directories to appear red and the name of scripts to be yellow etc. I know that the client (putty.exe) can change some of the colours but I am sure I have done it more comprehensively in some kind of profile on the Fedora box before now.

Any help greatly appreciated!
