How to use a .Net 2.0 dll in a Visual Basic 6.0 project?

We have an application created in C# 2005 using .Net framework 2.0 that prompts the user for inputs and then pops up some dialog boxes.
I also have the dll for this application as a com interop.

I would like to call this C# application from another VB 6 project. Probably I will have to provide references for the .net 2.0 dll in the VB 6 project.

Please advise if its possible? if yes, how can this be accomplished?

Thanks in advance!
