Does the rets of the project require VB, because there are far easier languages for doing networking.

Winsock would be the easiest way to go.

I tried making a program using the winsock control, but it won't work on the computers without VB after I compile it...something about winsock.ocx or some file like that...

Actually, it won't work on any computers yet. I didn't finish it.

Place winsock.ocx in the WINDOWS\SYSTEM directory.

easiest way to make sure it works on anyone's comp is use the Package and Deployment Wizard its part of the "additional goodies" that come with VB.
What that does is make a setup prog, just like when you install any other program, and it includes a cab file containing everything to install, so do that, then zip the setup.exe and the cab file together (sadly the winsock ocx is like 3mb so itll be pretty big) otherwise just send people your exe
and if they get the error send them the cab/setup thing.
