Just supply the CBRS_BOTTOM style when to enable docking to the bottom when you create the control.  AppWizard gives you something like this in CFrameWnd::OnCreate() when you ask for a rebar:

      if (!m_wndReBar.Create(this) ||
            !m_wndReBar.AddBar(&m_wndToolBar) ||
            TRACE0("Failed to create rebar\n");
            return -1;      // fail to create

instead, just use this extra code to specify the bottom-docking:


      if (!m_wndReBar.Create(this, RBS_BANDBORDERS, dwStyle) ||
            !m_wndReBar.AddBar(&m_wndToolBar) ||
            TRACE0("Failed to create rebar\n");
            return -1;      // fail to create

and that's that!
