Anyone ever try to have two modal forms?

I have an tabbed MDI application.
There is a time when I need to use a modal window.
It just so happens that this particular window, runs a query that has 4 sub queries.
The query takes 6-7 seconds to complete.
I would like to have a form popup with a progress bar that just loops(frmWaitScreen).
Well the only way I know of doing that is having frmWaitScreen modal also.
So I tried this, and all that happens is the first modal form is invincible (probably never never land) while frmWaitScreen is running.
After the query runs, frmWaitScreen is disposed, and the first form come back from never never land.
Any ideas are sincerely appreciated,
