move form save location

I have a project that I would like to organize a little better.
I would like to put my forms in a folder called forms.
I started by moving the forms into this folder, then I opened the project
and got many troubles loading.  I then would add the form and select the right one.

For some reason, this is not working correctly.  I didn't get all the way through the errors,
but one that I noticed was that my program no longer had the images in the image list anymore.

1. How do I move the storage location of my forms, classes, and mods and still have the program work correctly.

2. Is there anything else that I should know?

When you have a form that contains graphics such as images and icons they get stored in a .frx file with the same name as the form they correspond to. If the frx file is not in the same directory as the form,then you will lose any binary data such as images and icons for that form.

To move the forms and mods you can right click them in the VB IDE and do a "Save As"
