Description David Morse 2002-10-10 12:45:51 EDT
Description of Problem: No colored ls, no l. or ll aliases when TERM type is 
set to ansi (which is the default when telnetting in from a Windows box).  This 
is because ansi isn't listed /etc/DIR_COLORS.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 4.1.9-11

How Reproducible: Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Telnet to a RH 8.0 box from Windows.
2. ls

Actual Results:  No color when doing ls (also, ll and l. are not set as aliases)

Expected Results:  Color upon ls, ll and l. aliases set

Additional Information:  Quick fix:
