In Internet Explorer, hit F12 to pull up the Developer Toolbar.  Under the HTML tag you will see a mouse cursor button.  Select it and then select the Search text.  It should now have a blue border around it.  In the developer toolbar you will see the actual HTML code being sent to the browser.  This should give you the element name to address in your CSS to override the color.  When doing so, be sure to add "!important" to override the core CSS.

For eg:

#searchelementname
{
color: #FFFFFF !important;
}

In SharePoint designer, edit the Master page.  In the  section, add the following:

<script type="text/css">
.search, .search a
{
color: #FFFFFF !important;
}
</script>
