Custom colors for shell

How do you customise the default colours in the shell? Say I want to make the standard cyan, magenta and yellow slightly lighter.

Bash has nothing to do with it. The way colors are is depending on your terminal. If you're using OS X Terminal - you have to use its way to configure colors.

"One thing you can do with bash alone is to have a different color on your prompt on different computers/accounts.

My prompt is red when I'm root for example."
