Those are called action links. –  scribu Aug 5 '11 at 2:24

Code extracted from my plugin, adapt as necessary.

add_filter( 'plugin_action_links', 'wpse_25030_settings_plugin_link', 10, 2 );

function wpse_25030_settings_plugin_link( $links, $file ) 
    if ( $file == plugin_basename(dirname(__FILE__) . '/many-tips-together.php') ) 
         * Insert the link at the beginning
        $in = '<a href="options-general.php?page=many-tips-together">' . __('Settings','mtt') . '</a>';
        array_unshift($links, $in);

         * Insert at the end
        // $links[] = '<a href="options-general.php?page=many-tips-together">'.__('Settings','mtt').'</a>';
    return $links;
