 help for Launching applications automatically for unknown file types

Hi Guys,
i would like to let users download files of different types and have the
corresponding applications launch automatically when accessed from the
browsers. It works fine for known file types.

Here is the problem description:
in my web page i have link  that links to a file of unknown type ( for
ex: ).
when i click on this link (netscape navigator) it opens dialog box
titled "Save As".
instead i want brower to give user an option to run the application.
(for ex; using "open with" dialog box).

Any ideas will be great help..
