Don't know XP too well, but if its like 2000, you should be able to open any folder on your machine and go to the 'tools' menu. Select 'Folder Options'. One of the tabs at the top should say 'File Types', choose it. Scroll down to whatever filetypes you want to change (jpg, gif, bmp, whatever) and click once on it. Now, below the scroll menu there should be some text that says 'open with:...' and a button that says 'change'. Click Change, and then select the program you want to use. This works in win2k, but I have no idea about XP. Hope this helps.

yeah, thats manually changing the file associations, which ive done before, and should be the same in XP as it is in other versions of windows, but i was wondering if there was a simple way to do it from inside photoshop.
