Dragging two forms together

I have a program with four forms, not MDI. What I want is to be able to drag the main form and at the same time drag the others along, so it acts like one form. Kind of like winamp. I know someone posted a neat trick using a timer, but the problem is that the other forms don't move until you've finished dragging the main form.

Source code would be greatly appreciated!
