Look at show.settings() and str(trellis.par.get()). This will show you
what the default settings are. The group colors are set by the
superpose.* elements (e.g. superpose.line is for group lines). To set
them, I usually create a list and pass it to par.settings. For

my.theme <- list(superpose.line = list(col = c("darkred", "darkblue"),
lty = 1:2))
xyplot(y ~ x, data = mydata, groups = g, par.settings = my.theme,
  auto.key = list(points = FALSE, lines = TRUE))
