Adding a bitmap as a resource

I'm trying to include a bitmap as a resource in my project.  I'm writing a Visual C++ .NET Windows Form Application.  I imported the resource.  I can see it in my resource viewer window.  However, I'm unable to figure out how to access it in my code.  I've tried using Assembly->GetManifestResourceStream to no avail.  I even just tried to see what resources were available using GetManifestResourceNames and my bitmap fails to show up in the list.  I just want to be able to create a System::Drawing::Bitmap object of that resource, but I can't figure out how.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thank you.  The reason behind there being so many points is that I'm under time constraints and need an answer quickly.
