If you're planning to use DX9, I believe .NET is your only choice; VB6 does not support it. I recently posted a DX9 tutorial link in Tutor's Corner.

.Net has a lot of power and features that 6.0 does not offer, such as the Try/Catch statements which are very useful in error handling for DirectX (much better than On Local Error in 6.0).
And yes, .Net is the only option for DX 9.0. I dont' remember now where I saw it, but I seem to remember reading somewhere that Microsoft was not going to be offering anymore support/upgrades for 6.0. At least, not as DirectX is concerned. So unless you want to be using DX8 for the rest of your life, better upgrade to .Net
