How do I populate fields on a webpage (that is not on my web server), post the page, and then extract data from the resulting page?

I am using VS 2005, and VB. Net and I am trying to figure out how to bring up a page with a log in, populate the username and password, submit the page. (NOT to my web server) and then when the page has loaded extract data from that page, or click certain buttons on the page. I have been playing around with the internetExplorer Object, but I am not very familiar with it.

Nevermind - I have figured out the main problem, but I now need to know how to reference objects in a form (input boxes, drop down lists) with the InternetExplorer object in vb .net but the form doesn't have a name and there are mutiple forms and frames on the page....
