We were all new with computer stuff once. Don't worry about it. You'll 
learn :o)

The sub node stuff is the tree structure at the left.

"Sub node" is a term for "a node inside an other node".

When you first get to the file association dialog, I presume you have 
only one list of nodes at the left side, all with a small "+" to 
their left.

When you click the "+", you "unfold" that node so you can see 
what "sub nodes" it contains.

That would be my first guess too.

That would be my second guess, because in the list on my kubuntu 9.04 
computer I have only Dolphin and Konqueror, with Dolphin at the top.

Which would be my third guess.

Looks like a logical program order to me.

I'm not a developer on the KDE or kubuntu. I have just used KDE since 
the KDE 2 days, so I have an idea where to look for some things.

Best regards

Johnny :o)
