Aterm and dircolors

I recently downloaded and installed aterm. If I use 'ls --color' for ls, then executable files are green, directories and blue and links are cyan. However, i have /etc/DIR_COLORS set to display archives/compressed files in red and picture files in magenta. Even if I use 'ls --color', it only lists them as the regular file color. This works fine in Eterm. I added 'TERM aterm' to the list, but it didn't seem to help. How can I apply the colors to aterm?

Heh, this always happens, I figure out the answer right after I ask. For all those wondering, all you need to do is add "TERM rxvt" to /etc/DIR_COLORS, since aterm is based on the rxvt terminal program (at least that's what my reasoning was).
