Davetnova baritone uke stringing. (13) baritone uke stringing. 22 Mar 07

I've recently bought a tenor/baritone uke. OK its a cheap one but with a solid mahogany top. It's loud for the size of it but I'm not used to nylon strings and to me the top string sounds unbalanced (never sounds quite right) I'd like to put steel strings on maybe using 2nd to 5th strings from a straight guitar set tuned up EBGD but wonder if will take the tension. It seems fairly solid in that overbuilt way that cheap instruments have (not putting it down for being cheap, I like it). I just wondered if anybody has tried it or can suggest a way of balancing the top string somehow.
