Check out /etc/profile.d/colorls.sh for the various options available. The color codes are in /etc/DIR_COLORS if you want to modify them.

I typically rename the /etc/profile.d/*.sh files I don't want aliased to something else (see /etc/profile; there's a loop that executes all the .sh files in /etc/profile.d). Unfortunately that affects the entire system. At least "touch .dircolors" in my home directory will stop the colorization of my directories.
