Directory Picker in VC++ 6.0 with MFC

I want to get a directory through a dialog. There is a standard dialog that allows you to select a file, but not only a directory. Also, I cannot use ActiveX (WinNT).
How can I manage that?

Unfortunately, there's no MFC class to help you.  But there is an API: SHBrowseForFoder(). It'll present a dialog htat lets the user browse for a folder throughout their system.

Bruintje, I tried to use the DIRPK sample, but it didn't work properly (or I couldn't manage to implement it). But some other dude at C++ Programming Questions gave me a small, but very efficient sollution!
