Importing forms from vs2005 > vs2008 manually. How do i make vs2008 recognise them as forms?

Im moving an application from VS2005 to VS2008.
Im recreating my projects manually as I've had problems in the past allowing
VS to update my application automatically
I copy the xxx.cs, xxx.designer.cs and xxx.resx files for a form to the new
project directory.
I only add the .cs file to the project and VS2008 automatically picks up the
other 2 files and places them in subnodes in the solution explorer. But, the
icon shown in solution explorer is that for a class/code file and when I
double click on it I dont get my form shown. I only see the code in the cs
file.
If I add all 3 files to the project then a base node is created for each of
the 3 files.
How do I add a form properly please?

I solved it. I added a new form to the class library and it added all the
missing references the project needed to recognise them as forms.
Thanks anyway.

I really think it's a good idea to let VS2008 convert it. The changes
between 2005 and 2008 are *much* smaller than between 2003 and 2005.

Why not just try it, and then see the results by a diff with the
version in source control?
