How do I connect a VB6 application to MS Access 2007 database using ADO 6.0 (all code please, no data "widgets")

I'm still using the vb6 development environment but I want to step up the database and ado versions to the latest and greatest.  I'm currently using the following to connect to an access 2000 mdb:

Set conn = New Connection
conn.Open "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=" & dbPOSPath & ";Jet OLEDB:Engine Type=4;Jet OLEDB:Database Password=test"

also I haven't found ado 6.0 for download yet, any ideas?

also any chance you would know if I can still use the vb6 dataenvironment and datareport designers with an access 2007 db.  If so how would I set up the connection string?
