You have to alias 'ls' to 'ls --color=auto' or similar.  IIRC, Eli's
sample _bashrc already does this for you.  If you're going to use as your prompt, doskey can do this for you:

	doskey ls=ls --color=auto $T

(or similar... I tend to forget the exact syntax).

Mainly because this newsgroup gated bidirectionally to a mailing list.
