Default Can't reinstall IE

Yeah, I've searched for this and always come up with the same solution. "Go into your registry and change IsInstalled to 0". I tried that, and tried running the installation program, and just get "You have a newer version running blah blah blah". Anyone have a clue about how I can reinstall IE6 with Windows XP SP2?

N/M... after strenuous searching of the registry, I found the key that was holding me back. If you go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer you will see a version number there. That's what you need to change to another number (I changed mine to 1). Once I did that, setup ran.
