This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Although a great question, I'm afraid I've had to close it because it is very similar to this one. Hopefully you can have your question answered there. – Nathan Osman Nov 20 '10 at 5:01

If I understand you correctly, your question is very similar to this one: Is it possible to color the prompt in Bash?

There are a couple of answers there already.
