Help going from VB 5 to VB.Net

I'm thinking of getting VB. Net and would like some advice please.

I have a project written in Visual Basic version 5.
Will VB.net be able to do the same things as VB5?

what is the best way to convert a project written in VB version 5 to vb.net?
I also have VB version 6 but have never used it.

Can VB.Net be obtained free and legal? Where is the best place to get it from?

thank you in advance

Re: Help going from VB 5 to VB.Net

Visual studio express is free for none commercial use.

vb.net will do anything that previous versions did.

Copy your old code in. It will give you a list of errors to fix.
The biggest difference I found when converting a VB6 project was dates which are no longer numeric.
