When I boot up SUSE 9.1 amarok starts and opens onto the desktop. How do I stop this and any other programs I don't want to start on bootup?

The reason that the program is starting is either that it was running when you shut down (check your system tray to be sure it isn't actually running when you exit X), or becuase it's listed it .kde/Autostart directory (under your home dir).

What you have posted is the contents of the file that defines the Autostart directory.

Look *inside* the directory for any scripts that launch programs.

You can also completely exit Amorok, including the little icon that shows up on your task bar over to the right. If you don't exit the task bar piece, it will auto-launch again.
