Linux 2.6 - man page for setvtrgb (linux section 8)

SETVTRGB(8)									      SETVTRGB(8)

       setvtrgb - set the virtual terminal RGB colors

       setvtrgb vga|[FILE]

       The setvtrgb command takes a single argument, either the string "vga", or a path to a file
       containing the red, green, and blue colors to be used by the Linux virtual terminals.

       If you use the FILE parameter, FILE should be exactly 3 lines of 16 comma-separated  deci-
       mal values for RED, GREEN, and BLUE.

       To seed a valid FILE:
	 cat /sys/module/vt/parameters/default_{red,grn,blu} > FILE

       And then edit the values in FILE.
