VB code to detect and read motherboard serial number using WMI

I need Visual Basic code to detect and read motherboard serial number using WMI. The result should be displayed on the form. Can you help?
Sure! There's an excellent example on how to do this at the Microsoft Most Valuable Professional Web site. However, it's up to the motherboard manufacturer to return the serial number, so some might not.
