Use the Animation control.  This control is part of 'Microsoft Windows Common Controls 2 5.0' which is contained in comct232.ocx
and should be on your system if you have VB5 installed.

Put a picturebox on a form, and put this Animation control on the picturebox. The animation control can be made transparent.

Hope this helps.
