No need to reinvent the wheel.  Look in the Download page of my website 
for "ChopIt!" under "Visual Basic 6.0 Samples".  That project contains 
code and a couple of modules for using the common file dialogs through 
API calls.  What you want is the Browse Folder dialog, which is only 
available through the Win32 API and even there is not documented very 
well.  There should be enough in my demo app to get you up and running 
fairly easily.
