C# .NET MainMenu Control - How do you add menu item icons?

I'm working with the MainMenu control in C# .NET (NOT the toolbar control).  I want to add icons to the left of the menu items (in Office XP style) but I can't find a way to do that - can you help?

The .NET Framework 2.0 contains a different control called MenuStrip. It allows adding images to the left of menu items.
If you consider upgrading, then you can download only the Framework (for free of course), or you can try Visual Studio 2005 Express Edition (free development environments for .NET 2.0).
