This is only for fading the color white out. If you need more, tell me, and I will do it.
Ok... here is the source:

#include <conio.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <dos.h>

main ()
{
      int i;
      clrscr();
      printf("Hello");  //here is the text.
      for (i=45;i>0;i--)
      {
            outportb(0x3c8,7);
            outportb(0x3c9,i);
            outportb(0x3c9,i);
            outportb(0x3c9,i);
            delay(100);  //Change for faster/slower fade
      }
            //Resets port...
            outportb(0x3c8,7);
            outportb(0x3c9,45);
            outportb(0x3c9,45);
            outportb(0x3c9,45);
return 0;
}

Here is the source to fade out of white, into red, then out of red, and back to white.  Look for comments to changge colors.

#include <conio.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <dos.h>

main ()
{
      int i;
      clrscr();
      printf("Hello");  //here is the text.
      for (i=45;i>0;i--)
      {
            outportb(0x3c8,7);
            outportb(0x3c9,i);  //Red
            outportb(0x3c9,i);  //Green
            outportb(0x3c9,i);  //Blue
            delay(100);  //Change for faster/slower fade
      }
      for (i=0;i<45;i++)
      {
            outportb(0x3c8,7);
            outportb(0x3c9,i);  //Fade into Red.
            outportb(0x3c9,0);
            outportb(0x3c9,0);
            delay(100);  //Change for faster/slower fade
      }
      for (i=45;i>0;i--)
      {
            outportb(0x3c8,7);
            outportb(0x3c9,i);  //Fade out of Red.
            outportb(0x3c9,0);
            outportb(0x3c9,0);
            delay(100);  //Change for faster/slower fade
      }
            //Resets port...
            outportb(0x3c8,7);
            outportb(0x3c9,45);
            outportb(0x3c9,45);
            outportb(0x3c9,45);
return 0;
