Tools > Internet Options > Security

Then select the Internet zone if it's not already selected.

Click Custom Level...

Scroll down to the section node labelled, Scripting.

On the Active Scripting branch, select Enable.

You will then see this prompt:

Are you sure you want to change the security settings for this zone?

Click Yes and then click OK.

Reload the page or restart IE6 and you're good to go.

I don't have IE6 anymore, but in IE8 (which you should upgrade to), it is in Tools/Internet Options/Advanced. Maybe it's in the same place in IE6.
