I have created a GeneralDataTable that has some additial properties.  How do I set it up so it serializes when remoting.

 When I first did it I got An error saying it was not serializable.  I add that attribute but now I get A message saying The constructor to deserialize an object of type IpscoCommon.Common.GeneralDataTable was not found.
What do I do to get this error resolved.

it has to have a constructor that takes no parameters.

In addition to the default constructor as suggested by GregoryYoung, I think you need to add the following constructor as well:

Imports System.Runtime.Globalization

...

Public Sub New(ByVal info As SerializationInfo, ByVal context As StreamingContext)

     MyBase.New(info, context)

End Sub

That worked but in my form code I dim the GeneralDataTable.  Then I call my middle tier that returns me a generateDataTable with data.  Then when I check the propties of my GeneralDataTable on my form in contains all the data but any custom propties that I set in the middle layer have been set to nothing.  Why is this?

When you say your custom properties - are these all general VB.NET types or are they custom classes. If they are custom classes have you marked all of these as serializable as well? Also private properties will not be serialized if you are using XML Serialization. If you want private properties to be serialized you need to use Binary Serialization
