As someone else pointed out, the color package is a latex package.

If you really need to do color via plain TeX, you'll probably have to  
use dvips \special commands. I've never done that. Some online dvips  
documention is at http://www.radicaleye.com/dvipsman/dvips_toc.html  
(I have no idea how up-to-date this is!). It has a section on color.  
You might also look for the dvips documentation that should have been  
installed with tex. On my machine it's located at /usr/local/teTeX/ 

There might be some other way to do this if you uses pdftex. I don't  
know anything about it, though.
