Importing XML files into SQL Server 2000 tables

I am new to vb.net and importing the data in the xml documents into a sql tables.  I am wondering the best to approach this project.  The xml files that I need to import into a sql table will be in one folder.  So I am unsure on how to process the first file in the folder move the data into my sql table then move on to the next file until all the data on the xml files has been imported into my sql table.  Can anyone point me in the direction of how to code it properly so all xml files in the directory are read and also an example of how to take those xml fields and import them into my sql table?  Please advise.

Its not a 250 points question but anyway try using this code.

Note that you would have a dbconnection already open and a dbcmd as sqlcommand already configured.
Dim dTable as new DataTable
For each File in io.directory.getfiles("C:\XML")
    for i as integer = 0 to dTable.rows.count - 1
        dbcmd.commandtext = "Insert Into Table(column1, column2, ...) Values('" & dTable.rows(i).item(0) & "', '" & dTable.rows(i).item(1) ...
