How do I link two xml schemas with include?

I have an xml-file I'm using as template to create xsd-schemas in Visual Studio 2005.
However when I click generate schema - two files come out.
When I try to use those xsd files to generate my classes with xsd.exe schema definition tool I get an error when it cannon find one of the elements in the other file.

See example below.
The IDOC elements end up in a different xsd schema which transform just fine to classes with the xsd tool, but the <sap:ZCMR> schema will not compile. I've tried inserting the <xs:include to point out the schema containing the IDOC element, but this does not seem to work...
Source xml:
 
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<sap:ZCMR xmlns:sap="urn:sap-com:document:sap:idoc" tid="0A0D1E29193C4988A7F4132D">
     <IDOC BEGIN="1">
		<EDI_DC40 SEGMENT="1">
			<TABNAM>EDI_DC40</TABNAM>
			<MANDT>052</MANDT>		
     </IDOC>
</sap:ZCMR>
 
XSD output from generate schema in VS:
 
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<xs:schema xmlns:sap="urn:sap-com:document:sap:idoc" attributeFormDefault="unqualified" elementFormDefault="qualified" targetNamespace="urn:sap-com:document:sap:idoc" xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema">
  <xs:include schemaLocation="IDOC.xsd" />
  <xs:element name="ZCMR">
    <xs:complexType>
      <xs:sequence>
        <xs:element name="IDOC" type="sap:IDOC" />
      </xs:sequence>
      <xs:attribute name="tid" type="xs:string" use="required" />
    </xs:complexType>
  </xs:element>
</xs:schema>

typing xsd/? on Visual studio command prompt displays help for XSD generator exe and its parameters.
In that help the last line says that "Multiple file arguments of the same type may be provided."
I beleive this is what you are looking for.
Cheers!!

Thanks! It worked and the classes were created!
However, when I serialize the new class to a file, the namespaces aren't intact.

Original xml was

<sap:ZCMR xmlns:sap="urn:sap-com:document:sap:idoc" tid="0A0D1E29193C4988A7F4132D">

New output is
<ZCMR xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"

Can anyone explain how the namespaces are set?
