Question Ansi Color on Mandriva 2006?

Basically thats what I'm trying to do. Sometimes when I'm on the road, I will ssh in to a terminal window and dosome work. I don't always have VNC x11 running since I'm sometimes on 56k. Having said that, I notice on my friend's RedHat box ANSI color is running fine. All the directories are different colors from everything else and etc.
What do I have to install on Mandriva to get the same effect?

Do you mean when using ssh
ls -l --colour=yes
does not work?

Did you try below. I have no other idea, no other knowledge to share, sorry.
--color=tty, --colour=tty
Same as -o but only if standard output is a termi-
nal. This is very useful for shell scripts and
command aliases, especially if your favorite pager
does not support color control codes
