uninstalling IE5

How do you uninstall IE5 on W2P?.
I think my current installation got corrupted, since I cannot connect to the internet (and have THREE ISP's).
I tried to reinstall it, but the installation process 'sees' it's already installed and it 'finishes' asking you to reboot.
NT and Windows 95/98 have a way to work on this (Control Panel > Add/remove progs, select IE5, click Add/Remove,
and choose from several options.
This is not the case with W2P.
Will appreciate help to solve this problem.

IE5 is integrated into Win2K Professional, and as far as I can tell cannot be removed independently of the rest of the OS. You'll have to try an upgrade like ABCStore suggested.

I'm going to take ABCStore's comment as an answer, since the update helped in bringing - indirectly - my browser back to work. When I upgraded, it didn't 'repair' the previous version, so I decided to reinstall W2P; then I reinstall IE5.5 and trying those options (in Control Panel>Add/Rem..) I could finally make it work.
Thanks to both of you guys.
