Windows Microsoft will shutter its Windows XP line June 30, as planned, ceasing sales of Windows XP Professional and Windows XP Home to retailers and direct OEMs, Microsoft confirmed to eWEEK April 3. The statement from Redmond executives ends weeks of speculation that Microsoft would extend the life of the operating system as users turn up their nose at Vista, the operating system meant to supplant XP, and OEMs argue lighter versions of desktops and notebooks don't have the juice to run Vista.

Open Konqueror.

Go to the page you want as your home page: eg:
www.google.com

Select the text that is shown in the address bar and copy it to the clipboard (Crtl-C).

Settings -> Configure Konqueror.

In the middle of the settings dialog box, where it says "Home URL" ... erase the existing text, and paste (Ctrl-V) in the URL you previously copied to the clipboard.

Click OK.

I know this sounds easy for us nerds but most people I know can only comprehend 3 steps. Anything after that is too difficult.
1. go to page
2. right click home button
3. choose "make this my homepage"
