Try something like this, highlight cell F12 and enter the conditional formatting as shown below (Tools --> Conditional Formatting).

Then click OK.  Then on cell F12, click the Format Painter (looks like a little paint brush) and select cells F13:F21.

oops, meant to say this
(Format --> Conditional Formatting).

Not this
(Tools --> Conditional Formatting).

And of course, mine is for Excel 2003.

For Excel 2010, select the range F2:F21 and on the Home tab, click on the Conditional Formatting button and select Manage Rules. Click on the New Rule button and select the second option from the "Select a Rule Type". On the bottom of the dialog window put the Cell Value - "greater than or equal to" and select the cell F8. Click on the Format button to choose the formatting that you want to apply and click OK. Repeat for the second rule.
