help! (i am clearly a newbie!) using suse 9.2

In Konqueror, I right-clicked on a directory (thinking I was looking at a .txt file) and clicked "Open with...", selected Kate and checked the box that said "Always associate this app with this file type" (or words to that effect).

Now, whenever I click on a directory, Kate tries to open it!

How do I undo my bad?

    Thank you knollbert!  I made the same Linux newbie mistake today, but your response here helped me fix things.  I don't know why this is such a well-kept secret and is not mentioned (or certainly not obvious) in the KDE / Konqueror help, but I appreciated finding your answer here.
