I tried to install the patch as described below, however it didnt work. This 
is all i get:

missing header for unified diff at line 3 of patch
can't find file to patch at input line 3
Perhaps you used the wrong -p or --strip option?
The text leading up to this was:
--------------------------
|--- dircolors.c        Sat Sep 19 12:09:23 1998
|+++ dircolors-fixed.c  Thu Nov 23 12:25:30 2000
--------------------------
File to patch:                 

Im starting to feel like a newbie again haha.
Thanks for your help...
