How to create resizable property sheets?

I would like to create an application whose main interface looks like a property sheet, and I want it to be resizable by the user.  Unfortunately, I haven't found any way to do this.  Microsoft's stock property sheet control insists on retaining fixed dimensions.  How can I create resizable property sheets with the Win32 SDK or MFC?

I know such an interface is possible, because I have seen it in Explorer's "find" window and Adaptec's Easy CD Pro.  Moreover, Borland and Powersoft offer this type of interface in their RAD products.  If absolutely necessary, I would be willing to simulate the look I want with a tab control, but the documentation on tab controls is so sparse that I haven't figured out how to do it.
