Screen (the apps) Color

is there a way to add alias ls='ls --color=auto' to my screenrc (or to force screen to reload my /etc/profile) ??
I'm very tired of this white and black ls color and I don't want to type this by hand everytime I start screen.
Screen seems to be unable to exec command, if I give the alias in the screenrc, it gives me an error msg about "unknow command alias"

there is a way because redhat does it by default, I found it a couple of months ago but now I can't find out where it aliases it.

I was having the same problem fixed it by uncommenting the following line in my default ~/.screenrc file:

# make the shell in every window a login shell
shell -$SHELL

Hope this helps!
