Loading an assembly not in the GAC


I'm working on a client\server project and I would like the client to
be able to check the server to see if it requires a new dll (all of
the dlls are based on a single interface).. if so it should download
it and load it..

Is there any way of loading an assembly that is not in the GAC, or is
there a way for the client to programatically register the assembly in
the GAC?

Thanks for your help
