Branch and Merge of projects

I'm trying to get away from using the share functionality of VSS 6.0 because the new team system does away with it and suggests using branch and merge techniques.... I'm a little unsure as to how this works and if anyone can fully explain it I would be most appreciative.

Right now in our shop we do all asp.net development. all the different sites are different projects under source safe. I do all of the dll coding and dll's may be used in different web projects.. The class library has it's own project that I then share out sections of it to other web projects so that when I change the library the changes are seen throughout all of the other projects.

I am using microsoft application blocks for data.. How would I perform branch and merge on all of these projects?

Here is an example, if you haven't seen it already:

I am not a big fan of the way that VSS does branch and merge.  Recently, our company found out about AccuRev, and we our evaluating it.  It think that, for us, it will be a much better solution.  I would suggest you look into it.
