Encrypt/Decrypt in VS.NET 2005

Hi,

In VB.NET 2003, I have following code:
        Dim password As PasswordDeriveBytes
        password = New PasswordDeriveBytes(mstrPassPhrase, _
                                           saltValueBytes, _
                                           'MD5', _
                                           mintPasswordIterations)

        ' Use the password to generate pseudo-random bytes for the encryption
        ' key. Specify the size of the key in bytes (instead of bits).
        Dim keyBytes As Byte()
        keyBytes = password.GetBytes(CInt(mintKeySize / 8))

        ' Create uninitialized Rijndael encryption object.
        Dim symmetricKey As RijndaelManaged
        symmetricKey = New RijndaelManaged

=======================
But when I open this project in 2005, it shows that PasswordDeriveBytes is obselete. I tried to use the new method and wrote the code as follows. But where do I specify the algorithm like the did above?

The new code is:
 Dim password As Rfc2898DeriveBytes
        'Dim password As PasswordDeriveBytes
        password = New Rfc2898DeriveBytes(mstrPassPhrase, saltValueBytes, mintPasswordIterations)

If you see the above code, there is no parameter to specifiy 'MD5'.

Regards,
MI

encryption:
       Dim fStream As FileStream = File.Open("encrypted.txt", FileMode.OpenOrCreate)
        Dim RijndaelAlg As Rijndael = Rijndael.Create
        Dim cStream As New CryptoStream(fStream, _
                                       RijndaelAlg.CreateEncryptor(RijndaelAlg.Key, RijndaelAlg.IV), _
                                       CryptoStreamMode.Write)
        Dim sWriter As New StreamWriter(cStream)

        sWriter.WriteLine("Text to encrypt")
        sWriter.Close()
        cStream.Close()
        fStream.Close()

decryption:
 Dim fStream As FileStream = File.Open("encrypted.txt", FileMode.OpenOrCreate)
        Dim RijndaelAlg As Rijndael = Rijndael.Create
        Dim cStream As New CryptoStream(fStream, _
                                        RijndaelAlg.CreateDecryptor(RijndaelAlg.Key, RijndaelAlg.IV), _
                                        CryptoStreamMode.Read)

        Dim sReader As New StreamReader(cStream)
        Dim plainText As String = sReader.ReadLine()

        sReader.Close()
        cStream.Close()
        fStream.Close()
