Set "default browser"


Hi all,

Maybe its a really stupid question, but as I recall: There are no stupid questions, just stupid people....

How can you set a default browser in linux. Im a very happy opera user, and would like to open all web-pages with it. (i.e. I use aMSN, and clickin on "messages in inbox" opens mozilla.... I want it to open my default browser... (Opera)

Thanks for your suggestions!
