The line:
cell.BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.DarkOliveGreen
changes the background colour to dark olive green. Change the foreground colour in similar way.

If you want to change color of Single Cell you'll need to do this at DataBinding time in ItemDataBound event, here's C# code for the same:

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
private void DataGrid1_ItemDataBound(object sender, System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataGridItemEventArgs e)
  {
      switch( e.Item.ItemType )
         {
            case ListItemType.Item:
            case ListItemType.AlternatingItem:
                  e.Item.Cells[0].BackColor = Color.Red;      
                  e.Item.Cells[0].ForeColor = Color.White;      
            break ;
             }
  }
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

you still have problems?
Then I give you both lines you must use at runtime in VB.NET:

cell.BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.DarkOliveGreen
cell.ForeColor = System.Drawing.Color.DarkOliveGreen

One interesting thing you can do is to let the user change these colors during program execution: add a ColorDialog control to the form, set its Color property to the color you want it to have initially selected (for example dark olive green), then call the control's ShowDialog method. If the method returns DialogResult.OK, change the back color, or the forecolor.

Private Sub btnPickColor_Click(ByVal sender As _
    System.Object, _
 ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnPickColor.Click
    dlgColor.Color = Me.BackColor
    If dlgColor.ShowDialog() = DialogResult.OK Then
        btnPickColor.BackColor = dlgColor.Color
        Me.BackColor = dlgColor.Color
    End If
End Sub
