I am running Mandrake Linux 10.1

How can I uninstall Konqueror and make Firefox my default browser?

I already have firefox installed, but it's not the default browser yet.

Main menu>Preferences>Preferred applications

Select 'Web Browser'

'Custom Web Browser' <path_to_firefox>/firefox-installer/firefox %s

That's it on Gnome 2.6 on Fedora Core 2. Think it's the same on Gnome 2.4 and Mandrake (and on KDE).
