Setting default applications in GNOME2 SUSE Linux 10

This may sound really stupid: How do I set default applications, e.g. for pdf I want it to open in Adobe, etc?

Apologies if this is a repeat post.

In Nautilus it's right click properties, if you have it :P

Otherwise yeah, gconf is the way to go...
