I am writing a multiple document interface program.  I want to
be able to use some of the commands that are produced by
the wizard.  Namely the file open, save, and save as commands
I plan on using the ID_FILE_OPEN and other commands.  How
can I modify the properties of the CommonDialogs that are created
by these commands.  If it is not possible, I know I can create my
own dialogs with the CFileDialog class, but how would I use that
in the MDI.  I am used to using a dialog program where I could just
add the dialog control to my project dialog.

You should derive your CMDIFrameWnd class and handle command
identified by ID_FILE_OPEN, which is generate a CFileDialog
object, where you could set or modify properties. If you want
add extra controls to the common file open dialog, then you have
to derive your own class and modify the common control resource
to add your own control.
