How To Update IIS 6.0 Metabase

I need to update the IIS Metabase to set the AspKeepSessionIDSecure property to True. How do I go about doing this?

My next question is what is the scope of this property? Most of our sites on this box are unsecure. So if we set the AspKeepSessionIDSecure property to true, will this affect all the sites and in turn take down the sites that are not secure?

Thank you for your time.
