i don't understand what you mean when you say "you can't drag a form". i drag them all the time across the screen etc. but what i'm trying to do is drag a form that is basically a navigation tool for my application, and allow it to be docked to the top of any form that i drop it on...

you're mixing terms here. you move a form. you don't drag it. drag is the operation part of the drag and drop. you cannot drag a form. sure, you can move a form and you can dock a form. so you have 3 operations here;
- moving (which everybody does)
- drag and drop (which you cannot do on forms)
- and docking (which you can only do with some forms)

for docking, here are a few links.
