Correct way to use Assembly.Load(byte())?

I'm struggling with an odd problem and I want to validate something.

What is the right way to load an assembly from bytes?

Is this code correct? :

....
Private Function loadBytes(filename as string) as Byte()
Dim fs As New FileStream(filename, FileMode.Open)
Dim buffer(CInt(fs.Length)) As Byte
fs.Read(buffer, 0, buffer.Length)
fs.Close()
return buffer
End Function

Dim rawAssembly() as Byte = loadBytes("aWellFormatedPath&FileName")

[Assembly].Load(rawAssembly)
....

sure. but because you are loading an assembly from memory, if that assembly
references another assembly, you should load that one first (as you have a
rather restricted search path).
