Set Magnet link to open in Vuze - Mac - Safari - want to keep uTorrent

Hi, For the love of God, does anyone know how to get Vuze to set to default to work with magnet links. That is open automatically when I select a magnet link and start downloading? I've been using uTorrent and now that I use Hide My Ass pro to hide my IP address, I need to start using Vuze since Hide My Ass won't work with uTorrent on a Mac. I know Vuze does.

I've spent the last two hours reading bogus responses from bone heads that answer the question but don't know what their talking about.

OSX Lion
Keeping uTorrent on my Mac to finish existing downloads
Installed Vuze
Need Vuze to open when I select a magnet link.
Instead uTorrent still opens.
Is there a dang default setting in Vuze to select (Set at default client for magnet links) or something similar?
I know Safari has no such settings.

This is driving me nuts! Thanks ahead of time if you have the correct answer for me! Russel

I recommend installing the 3rd party System Preference RCDefaultApp

It'll let you set this amongst defining how all other URL protocols and file types are dealt with on your system.
