ansi-color.el is part of emacs, it will be loaded with emacs, so you
have nothing to do with that.

Also:
be sure you have something like that in your .bashrc:

,----
| if [[ -f ~/.dir_colors ]]; then
|       eval `dircolors -b ~/.dir_colors`
| else
|       eval `dircolors -b /etc/DIR_COLORS`
| fi
`----
(Assume you have such a file)

The best is to have a per-user file : "~/.dir_colors"
Just copy it from /etc

You can also add this line in this file:

,----
| TERM dumb
`----

And now with the code i sent in precedent post or the code Peter sent,
it should work.
