Debian w/ KDE 3.3.2: setting default programs, and mp3 support


I'm running Debian 'Sarge' 3.1 with KDE 3.3.2, and I'm a bit of a noob. I can't figure out how to configure default programs for specific actions, specifically using kpdf instead of kghostview for opening .pdf files, and replacing Konqueror with Firefox as my default browser. I also could use advice on initiating mp3 support in Debian, and what's a good program for ripping mp3s? Thanks.

Choose the apps you want to use as defaults.

As far as playing mp3 what media player(s) do you have installed?

Search the available packages Debian -- Debian Package Search Results
