Not xterm-16color

Please be careful to use a terminal definition entry that is valid on your system.
You may have more success with "xterm-color" which is often available in many systems. And was recognized on my default 10.2.2 config. As far as seeing color when using "ls" for example; look at the ls man page for info.

How do we find which are valid with our system? Both xterm-color and xterm-16color work on my machine (seen by playing nethack), but when I use them I can't run programs on a sun unix machine I ssh into.

I had to get a compile of lscolor for OS X in order to get a color ls. I should note that I've been using it since before 10.2, so I don't know if they made the default ls color or not. I also have no clue where I got the thing anymore, so don't ask. :)
