    The easiest way.................................

    If you are using MFC, I hope you are using MSVC++, then take your dialog and clear all of the markers ( the little blue lines around it, (right click on the white ruler at the top of the screen)). After this, create a picture control and set it properties to a 'bitmap'. Now this is the trciky part, open your image in an editor such as Adobe Photoshop 6.0 and make your areas where your controls are going to be transparent (this is the only way that has worked for me, but there may be others along the lines as such). Import your bitmap and make sure to call it by the right name in your picture control. Make sure to make your image the right size, or visa versa, your dialog, to support your image size.

    Hope this works for you!
    If your not a MFC'er the sorry, maybe this will help someone else!
