Default How Do Remove Firefox As Default Browser?

I believe when I installed Firefox I made it my default browser over IE. How do I go back and make IE my default?

(Running win 2000 Pro O/S)

In Internet Explorer...

Tools > Internet Options > Programs

Check the box that says "Internet Explorer to check to see if it is the default browser". Click Apply, and message stating that IE is not your default browser should pop up, with the option to make it the default browser. The rest is fairly straightforward...
