Using VB.NET to access tables from a Visual FoxPro app

How can I use VB.NET to access the tables from an application written in Visual FoxPro 6?
If Visual FoxPro 8 can read Visual FoxPro 6 tables directly (no upgrading), one way is to use the Visual FoxPro 8 OLE DB Provider ( http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=0F43EB58-7A94-4AE1-A59E-965869CB3BC9&displaylang=en). You can use COM Interop from Visual Basic .NET to talk to the OLE DB provider.
