In AutoCAD 2000+, while you are in the Plot dialog box, find the Plot Style Table section - change the plot style to "acad.ctb".

If it is already set to "acad.ctb", then click on Edit. For each screen color listed, you can choose the plot color. For example, you could make screen color 1 (red) plot red, screen color 5 (blue) plot black and screen color 6 (magenta) plot green.

By default, each color in the "acad.ctb" is set to plot the same as its screen color.
