MMC Snapin Development

I have developed a MMC snapin in the old Windows platform SDK using VB6. However now that I am attempting to move all of my components into VS2005 I need a new designer or access to new interfaces. I have been reading on some of the newsgroups that the .NET Framework 2.0 SDK is surposed to have some components to assist in this however I have installed it and can not see any.

Can someone please confirm that the .NET Framework 2.0 SDK has some components and point me in the right direction or point me at the best approach.
I have a copy of the ironringsoftware.com C# code however I was hoping someone knew of any standard designers, framework components or better third party designers.

Yes, right, I am a .NET freak. So I needed some thing in .Net to write my snap in. And thats exactly when I bumped into this  .NET Wrapper implementation for accessing MMC SDK. For more details on .NET based development of MMC please visit: http://sourceforge.net/projects/mmclibrary/

I have also read it on some blog that Microsoft is going to offer some native support for MMC development in .NET 2.0.
 Following are some of the resources that can get any one started in MMC.
