VB6 Installation with previous version VB5

I'm going to install VB6 in a win95 machine where VB5 is allready installed. I have heard that VB6 overwrites some ocx. I'm afraid I will have problems with my old VB5 applications, that I will need to mantain. The questions are:
1) Is it possible to keep VB5 and VB6 in the same machine?
2) What kind of measures can I take to avoid version incompatibilities and that sort of problems?
Thanks in advance.

You can keep VB5 and VB6 on the same computer, but in different windows.
For example, on my computer, I use VB5 under Win 98 and VB6 under NT.

NEVER install VB6 under the same Windows version than VB5 or the maintenance of your VB5 applications will be bad.... because VB6 will replace the comctl32.ocx, the comdlg32.ocx..... so you will need to reinstall all those OCX on the client PC
