How can I store a Word doc with an image in it in a SQL Server table?

How can I store a Word document that has an image in it in a SQL Server table? I want to be able to download it from database and edit the document. I am writing in VB.NET.
See the following post at my weblog: http://weblogs.asp.net/cazzu/archive/2003/08/27/25568.aspx.

Even if you're not thinking in an ASP.NET IHttpHandler, the code will be useful. Translating to VB.NET should be trivial.

Note that the file in its entirety is stored in the DB, therefore, it doesn't matter if it contains images, visio drawings or embedded excel files.
