If you are looking for simple steps on how to do this for the first time:

  1. Go to Setup | Create | Workflow & Approvals | Workflow Rules | New.
  2. Then select the object you want to run the workflow on, e.g., opp'y.
  3. Click Next, give it a name, set your evaluation criteria and select the criteria that the rule should fire under, e.g., when picklist value is "itemA".
  4. Click "Save & Next", select a Workflow action "New Field update", give it a name and select the object "opportunity" and the field you want to update, e.g., "opportunity record type",
  5. Select the record type form list list presented.
  6. Click Save. Don't forget to go back to the rule and activate it (edit and select activate).
