Default Windows 98/wordpad!!

I have a computer at work that uses windows 98 on it. How do I make the computer default to Wordpad and not note pad?? They post out programs from the office and somehow I need to DEAFULT windows to use Wordpad?? by right clicking on the file, there is no option to choose a program... also, I have tried to disable Notepad hoping it would force windows to use Wordpad, but that didnt work..... Should I ask the office to start posting out files in Word documentation??


sorry if it sounds so confunsing???
