Global Settings

Windows has an option when user can choose default Browser, email client, video player and etc. I use Red Hat 9 with KDE and GNOME. But the default browser is Mozilla when I highlight the text(Mozilla opens up) and default player is xine, but I want to use Mplayer. How can I change the default settings. I spend some time , but I couldn't find the option to change the global settings.
