Thanks! It works. I spent a tiny amount of time reading the docs and digging 
around
 /usr/share/mc/
/usr/share/doc/mc-4.6.1a/
There *is* a mention of the colour configuration within the docs, but nothing 
on how to specify the background. Thanks for that script, Sir!!

(sidenote: Mcedit's OK although a bit basic. I'm a vimmer as I like the way I 
can edit files in multiple buffers and windows. If MC could do that then I'd 
probably use it.)
