Question goggle chrome


I am running PC LinuxOS 2010.12, I am using google chrome as my web browser, when I open Chrome it asks me if I want to set chrome as my default browser and I click yes. The message goes away, but the next time I open the browser its asks again. When I go to the tools settings it says that chrome is not the default browser and I try to click set as default browser but it does not do anything, can anyone help?
Thanks.

Try navigating to System -> Preferences ->Preferred Application. Just select google chrome as your default browser. The path I referred is with reference to fedora 14 , plz find the same in your system if not the same.

I went to the settings in chrome and click set chrome as default browser but it wont do anything. I even removed the only other browser on the system (Firefox) but still no luck. Is there a place to set the default browser in the PCLinuxOs settings someplace?
