This is a question that comes up a lot on this list.

The short answer: you can't. The slightly less short addendum: you
probably don't really want to do that.

I encourage you to look back in the recent archives for a discussion
of this. I believe Carl Eastlund posted a nice message explaining why
people often try to do this and a few ways to avoid doing it. See this
msg and related thread:
