MS Forms 2.0 Library

I have VB 4.0 installed.  One of the options in the Custom Controls box is 'Microsoft Forms 2.0 Object Library'.  The associated .dll is FM20.DLL in the Windows\System directory.  Adding this to my project adds a lot of what appear to be duplicate controls.  In other words, I now have two Label controls, two text controls, etc.  The two controls do, however, have different properties and events.  Using the Object browser also hints at new methods.  Pressing F1 displays a 'Help file not found' message.  Does any one know where I can get documentation, electronic or otherwise, on this library?

With VB5, the associated help file works fine, and is
called FM20.hlp and should be in ...\Miscrosoft Shared\VBA

The help is included with VB5.  The main benefits of these additional controls are to provide database linking to each of the new controls.  This is not true for most of the normal controls.  The help file included with VB5 is bare and not as complete as the normal controls.  MS still needs to enhance the help file associated with these additional controls.
