[R] setting specific colours for different groups of points on a scatter plot

I have a table with three columns of data, let's call these a, b and c. I have produced a scatter plot of a against b, but I would like to colour the points according to their corresponding c values. c takes the value of either 0,1,2,3 or 4 and so I would like to colour all of the points with a c value of 0 one colour, all those with a c value of 1 another colour etc. When I use the following code, it colours the points using default colours, which are not suitable:

data<-read.table('abc',header=T, sep="\t") attach(data)
xyplot(a~b, col=c)

I was therefore wondering how to specify my own set of colours for each of the c values. Any help would really be appreciated as I have spent ages reading through the documentation, but with no luck.
