IE5 Not Show FP2K Edit Option

I have IE5, recently upgraded to 5.01, and Netscape 4.7, and MS Front Page 2000, all on a new Dell Optiplex with w98. When I am in IE5 and click the Edit button on the Standard Buttons Bar, the dropdown gives me a choice of only Notepad or Netscape Composer, not Front Page which is what I want.  
I tried Control Panel, Internet, to select FP as the HTML editor, but there it does not show FP as an available choice either.  I even reinstalled FP, hoping that would override some conflict, but no luck.
Temporarily, to edit a web page in FP, I first open FP then bring the file in, but it would be preferable to be able to hit the Edit button while in FP.
How can I make the FP2K Edit option operate in IE5 like it does on other computers I use?

Did you try it before upgrading to 5.01? Here at work we've had 5.01 do some weird things at times, whereas 5.0 seems to be rock solid.

It seemed OK at 5.0 but not at 5.01, yet on another machine the upgrade had no adverse affect.  Going back is not  the answer at this point.

OK, but I would say doing some type of re-install of IE is about the only option left at this point. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

Can't say if this would have worked or not, because Microsoft Support came up with a standard fix that was quite comprehensive, involving a whole different approach. Apparently others have faced the problem. Since that worked, I can't replicate the problem.

However, the answer suggested is worthy of acceptance, and I thank you!
