Installing VB 6.0 Over VS2005/VSS 2005

Didnt know where to put this - so here:

Hello - for this case I am primarily an ASP.NET programmer with Visual Studio2005/VSS 2005/ SQL 2005 installed.
A situation came up where a client wants an application done in VB 6.0.

Several questions about this.
1) Path of least resistance: Is it possabel to to VB Application Development in VS2005  - WITHOUT using the .NET framework?
2) Application Installation Musical Chairs- Installing VB 6.0 from the msdn download seems to be locking up. I speculate it is because VS2005 is already installed.
Do I need to uninstall VS 2005 and then install VS 6.0 and _THEN_ re-install VS 2005?

Are there any known issues with either of these approaches? Or a better way to do it?
I am limited to one dev. box, and dual booting isnt an option due to space. One box, one boot OS.

Any suggestions?

You can't do VB6 development from VS2005.

The two can coexist side by side without any conflicts.  In fact, I have VB6, VB.Net 2003 and VB.Net 2005 on my system with no problems.  Though I installed them in that order...

They all use independent libraries (the VB6 runtime, .Net 1.1 and .Net 2.0) which supposedly do not interfere with each other.
