1) The thing you downloaded is the JavaScript only. You also need the PHP class and some additional JavaScript to make it work in SilverStripe. Download it from my site: http://bummzack.ch/colorpicker (scroll down and download colorpicker.zip).

2) dev/build is something quite fundamental when developing with SilverStripe. You have to do it whenever you add new modules or own page-classes to your website. Basically you just append /dev/build to the URL where SilverStripe is installed. So if SilverStripe is installed in http://localhost/silverstripe, it would be http://localhost/silverstripe/dev/build.
I think you should really have a look at the SilverStripe tutorials.. it's all explained there: http://doc.silverstripe.org/doku.php?id=tutorials

/dev/build requires a login if your website is live.
Either login, or if you can't do that due to the Error, add the following to mysite/_config.php

Director::set_environment_type('dev');

Then you should be able to run /dev/build without login.
Your colorpage looks fine.

The colorpicker module just adds a new field to the SilverStripe form fields.
If you create a new "Color Page" in the CMS you should be able to select a color on the color field you added there...

Do you see the text-field labeled "Background Color"? If you click on it, the color selector should appear.
