Word 2010 - how do I use normal.dot?

Word 2010 is using normal.dotm - I need to use normal.dot (seems .dotm may be causing problems for other users).

How do I delete normal.dotm and specify normal.dot as default?

As a side bar, the old file Properites dialog box was really useful but seems to be gone in 2010 - how do I find those file "properties" in order to make changes? (I must be missing something...)

Regards,
GEWB
