    if you're using the standard gnome terminal, just press the edit button in the top left and select preferences... enjoy
    The box said that I needed to have Windows 98 or better... so I installed Linux

    Congrats on the big move - you won't regret it!

    If you plan on doing some shell scripting, you may want to consider using vim rather than nano. There are hundreds of color schemes you can use (or create your own) that will give you syntax highlighting. If you take the time to learn the hotkeys, editing becomes much faster and efficient using Vim over an plain editor like nano. There are a some vim cheatsheets around that it can be helpful to have around at first.
