You need a help authoring tool to do it. Go to http://www.microsoft.com/msdn/sdk to download the tools that come with the Platform SDK. There is Microsoft Help Workshop that allows you to create the .hlp files. Also, there are some other tools like RoboHelp (http://www.blue-sky.com) you can use. That Web site has some useful information.

Actually, HTML Help is now the recommended help system. the Platform SDK also contains Microsoft HTML Help Workshop.
