I RTFM, therefore I know. :-)

Just kidding, but you will be happier with KDE if you either read the dox
or explore all of the menus.

The background color is under: "View" in the main Konqueror menu.

{OOOOPPPPPPSSSS: Didn't finish this.} :-)

The text and selected color is determined by the overall color selection.

In the: "Preferences" menu:

	Appearance & Themes => Colors

You can change the color for: "Standard Text" & "Selected Text" but this will change it 
everywhere.  AFAIK, there isn't a separate place to set it for KFM.
