I've been using VB for 10 years, but I don't know what you mean by publishing the dll... Please do excuse me, I've been up all night, but not familar with the phrase you used.... Publish to a web server????

Regarding  the second part of your question, about how to obtain your component's classid.... Digging threw the registry is a pain, one really easy way though is to create a new project and reference the dll from your "references" dialog. Then Save the project and open the .vbp (project file) with notepad. The classid will be right there in plain site. As a matter of fact, this is the only way I know to get the classid of dll's I create without using third party software or digging in the registry....
