Question PDF Viewers-want kpdf in place of ggv

Am running Fedora Core 3 with both KDE and GNOME.

When my E-Mail programs (Evolution and Thunderbird) or my browser (Firefox) encounter a .pdf file, they automatically open it with ggv.

1. I want to kpdf to be the program that opens .pdf files.

2. I want to have a choice each time between opening the .pdf file in kpdf and saving to disk.

What do I do?
