Default Should I go VB.NET or VB 2005 from VB6?

Hi all,
I have some years of experience using VB6 and I haven't program in VB.NET nor VB 2005. I just got a book on vb.net (2003) to start learning but I found an standard free copy of VB2005 on MS site.

Should I skip vb.net and go to VB 2005?

U can, infact with the introduction of 'My' in VB2005 and other such features, you would be able to find your way arround more intuitively in VB2005 than in VB .NET.
U need to be carefull with the selection of the reference book however, 'cause most books on vb2005 at this point are more about moving from vb .NET to VB 2005 and not about VB 2005 as a product in its own right.
U need to search for a book that tells you more about VB2005 and not confuse you with "what happened earlier" stuff.
