Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

gotta ask a silly question now
when you make file associations, do you check the "always open this type of file with this program" box?
How often would be periodically? Do you know a way to manage that?
I got the same prob, for example, a few days ago, I connect kaffeine to nearly all video-filetypes, and now its only connected to .asf files. BTW, I did the connections in kcontrol... and it needs more or less time to forget the settings every time I readjust them.
Distribution: Mac OS X Leopard 10.6.2, Windows 2003 Server/Vista/7/XP/2000/NT/98, Ubuntux64, CentOS4.8/5.4
(At least in Mandrake 9.1)
1) To associate file types to a program, right click the file, and there is something like EDIT FILE TYPE or EDIT FILE PROPERTIES. Select, or add, the program to the list and move it up for priority. I thought it was like Windows XP where you click OPEN WITH FILE... and then check that box "always associate files with this type". That doesn't work so go with my method I mentioned.
2) KDE forgets things (happens to me, too!) so what I do is logout, then shut down. I never shutdown directly until I have logged out. this works for me and it remembers everything I have done. I don't know why I have to log out, though.
