I use emacs on a console (without X) and it s in monochrome
but when I use emacs on X, it s in color, and on a console, when I made ls, it s in color too. So I dont know if it s a problem of console configuration...
      Thanks for email me the answer

I think emacs just doesn't support color on the console.
You could check the source code to be sure, but AFAIK, color
is only supported on X.
If a color emacs is that important to you, you could try and
write the support code yourself (highly non-trivial :)
