Multiple instances of a Form

I'm creating an application where I need to be able to have multiple instances of a form open at once. The form I want to have multiple instances of is an MDI Child (if that makes a difference). I need to have that form, everything on it, all it's procedures and everything working exactly the same on each instance of the form. Can someone tell me if there is an easy way to do this?
