Don't worry about MFC, just have to create another thead with WinAPI CreateThread() function.
Your function won't be a member of a MFC class (will be global) but still you can use any MFC object.

In general, I'd recommend http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/en-us/dndllpro/html/msdn_threads.asp ("Multithreading for Rookies") as a lecture regarding this issue. It comes with quite some sample code.

Here's a good tutorial for that: http://www.codeproject.com/threads/threads_and_mfc.asp ("Threads with MFC"). Bsically, you'd use

UINT MyThreadProc( LPVOID pParam ) {

    // ...
}


CWinThread* pThrd = AfxBeginThread(MyThreadProc,NULL);
