You cast on with whatever color is called for in that part of the pattern and add the other colors when they're called for. If you're doing a stranded knitting project, the new color would start at the beginning of the row. If it's an intarsia project--with a color motif centered--then you start the new color at the first stitch of the new color.

You can start knitting with it and weave in the end, or tie it. Here is a good site on intarsia knitting.

OK, then you can just start knitting. For a bit of security, you can knit the tail in with the main strand for a few stitches.
