Red Hat I know what you're thinking, but don't worry. This article isn't 'Yet Another Red Hat 8.0 Review'. This article is primarily about using Red Hat 8.0 if you happen to be a newbie, but it's also about using Red Hat 8.0 if you happen to be a KDE user. Why? I happen to be a KDE user, so it makes sense I'd focus more on what I know the most about. Plus, I still remember the frustration of staring with something akin to terror at a blank command line with lots of ideas about what I'd like to do and very little knowledge of how to do it.

RE: Konqeror as default

I use Evolution, and also couldn't figure out how to change its default browser. So I renamed /usr/bin/mozilla to /usr/bin/mozilla-orig, and linked /usr/bin/mozilla to my browser of choice:

su
cd /usr/bin
mv mozilla mozilla-orig
ln -s netscape mozilla

The disadvantage is that I had to change all references to "mozilla" (e.g., in menus or desktop icons) to now reference "mozilla-orig", but it was a one-time change.
