To setup xterm with different colors than the system default edit the file ~.Xresources.

Here are some links to a few good color schemes I found.

To enable changes to the file add

[[ -f ~/.Xresources ]] && xrdb -merge ~/.Xresources

to ~/.xinitrc and restart your terminal or use source ~/.xinitrc
