Fancy buttons for VB.net?

I was wondering if there is an easy way to get fancy/nice looking buttons for my vb.net application.
The old square ones look so...old and square.

I tried using a picture box and making button graphics but then I have to include those .gif's in the distribution package and they can get lost and stuff.

Is there an easy way to get some good looking buttons in there?

How fancy are you talking?  I mean you could

1) Change the style of the basic buttons, make them flat etc , (you have already ruled out adding gifs to the project to make an imagebutton, this is the easiest way)
2) Have you looked at Windows Forms 2?  Their buttons have a few more pretty styles, not images per se, but border styles, rounding, etc etc

Or maybe look at http://www.windowsforms.net/ControlGallery/default.aspx?Category=23&tabindex=9
