How to set Opera as default web browser?

I have RedHat Linux 9.0 in my system and I recently installed Opera 7.53. I want to make Opera as my default web browser (desktop is KDE). How do I do that? Is there any environment variable I have to change? When I click any link from some applications Mozilla get loaded. I want Opera to do this. Any idea or suggestions. Please help me. Thanks in advance.
