Change default website in IIS on 2008 server

Hi, here is what I have.  I have a 2008 server.  I first installed a dotnetnuke instance, which was the default.  I then installed a sharepoint site and the dotnetnuke instance still exists, but now when I browse to local host, it brings up the sharepoint site instead of the dotnetnuke site.  I need to somehow have the dotnetnuke site come up by default and then the sharepoint site perhaps on a different port.  Listed below is what I see when I go into IIS.  

Sites
     Default Website
          aspnet_client
          faithwebsite  (dotnetnuke site directory)
          wss
              virtual directories
                    23381
                    80  (sharepoint site that is coming up now)

Any help would be appreciated.

right click on 'default website'  then go to 'properties' --> 'home directory' --> 'local path'.
set the local path to the website's physical path which you want to open by default.
