Angry Konqueror directory trouble in SuSE 9

I'm on SuSE 9 and have 2 HDs,

'/dev/hda1' - RieserFS (SuSE standard) main disk.
'/dev/hdb1' - FAT32 (Old Windows disk, has stuff on it)

hdb1 is mounted as /mnt/D

I've created a shortcut to /mnt/D/winw on my desktop. Most of the time when I open it I get :

There appears to be a configuration error. You have associated Konqueror with inode/directory, but it can't handle this file type.

Sometimes I can access it, sometimes I can't.

Helps please.

Cut and paste your /etc/fstab file so I can see how it's mounted...

Is the problem related to directories that contain an index.html file?

I have had a similar problem: All directories with an index.html file gave the error message when I tried to open them in konqueror.

My solution was:

1. - rename the directory ~/.kde (the .kde directory in your home directory) to something else i.e. .kdexx

2. - As root copy /root/.kde to your own ~/.kde and change owner and group of this directory and all subdirectories and files (you can do this within konqueror with root rights).

3. - copy the file ~/.kdexx/share/applnk/Home.desktop to ~/.kde/share/applnk/Home.desktop

Restart konqueror and it should work. You lose some desktop settings which you have to fix next time kde is started. But that's a minor problem compared to the inode/directory problem

Konqueror index file problem

I get this problem on Konqueror 3.1.4 on SuSE 9.0.
It happens whenever I try to browse a dir. that contains a index.html file.
Solution: click View menu and disable "Use index.html" option.

I think it's a problem with html mimetypes and Konqueror but not 100% sure yet.
