Read digital client certificate values without pointing to physical file in .Net 1.1/1.0

I have installed digital client certificate in Local Computer (Personal/Certificates directory) section. I want to retrieve this information from .Net 1.1 without referring to physical certificate file.

In .Net 1.1, I could successfully read the certificate information referring to physical ".cer" file. But I need to access this information without poiting to physical file.. just by reading Digital Certificate Store.

In .Net 2.0/3.0, I could read this certificate value without referring to physical file using X509Store class. This class was introduced in .Net 2.0. I wanted to know that is this functionality offered in any other class of .Net 1.1, same as class X509Store for .Net 2.0/3.0?
