How to add .chm help files to VB.NET application

I'm trying to create an interactive user manual, where the user can access a
particular web site and look at user manual for that particular web site.
I have embedded Window Web Browser into VB.NET form. I want to add .chm help
files into a panel or other controls in order for the user to browse through
the help files while they are accessing the particular web site.
Any help would be appreciated.
the only way i know how to display a *.chm file is to:

Help.ShowHelp(sender, "Help.chm")
'sender being a control and "Help.chm" being the help file that's in the same folder as the application
I'm not sure if this will help but I'm pretty sure you can still reference the original HTML pages by file name in a .chm file. I think it's just "file.chm\file.htm". I haven't used the method for a while but I'll look back and see if I can find more info.
