DPI aware Programming

I recently completed a program with a form composed of various objects (TabControls, Buttons, MoviePlayer etc).  When I install this program onto various computers with screens set at various resolutions I find that either the form overlaps the screen (i.e.; require scroll bars) or that the form components have excess space around them.  Are there any methods or tricks to minimize the problem of varying screen resolutions when writing a program?  
I am using VB.net/ Visual Basic 2005

Thanks.

The built in ways of handling such a situation is using the Dock and Anchor properties of controls.
