Re: How do I fix the Open With list?

Don't multi-post please. I think it was the Mandrake group where you got
plenty of answers.

You can edit associations in Control Centre. It has a rather convenient user
interface for doing so. If I recall correctly, Mandrake has that facility
too. I wiped Mandrake off my machine yesterday in favour of Ubuntu. I found
Mandrake a little buggy, which made me uncomfortable. In just 24 hours, I
had quite a few issues arise and I had to open shells and look up solutions
in forums.
