You think this is an easy question?  Well, unfortunately, VB gives you no means of doing it.  It can be done IN VB, through non-VB API programming.  But, If you were to do it, it would be worth selling.  The only feasible way to get it quickly is to purchase a 3rd party ActiveX control that gives you the functionality.  Try www.21Hex.Com.  they are the only maker of a Dockable Form Control that I know of.  Sheridan (www.SherSoft.Com) makes a great dockable toolbar control, but does not have support fo dockable forms.  I hope this helps.
