Office 2003 and 2007 installed, how to make 2003 primary to open files ?

Dear Experts,

I'm sorry if I'm asking a question that is quite possibly been answered..
Windows XP Sp2 has Office 2003 installed, user requested to install Office 2007 while still keeping Office 2003.
I know how to install both version of the Office, my problem is how to make Office 2003 default to open the files. Office 2007 will only be used once in a while. One of the ways that did work for me only on some machines was installng Office 2007 in a different directory, so instead of Program Files\MS Office I installed it in Program Files\MS Office 2007 however like I said it worked on some machines and not the others. Users usually have to to open Office application and then open a document. Also, I will keep Outlook 2003. Outlook 2007 will not be installed.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
