Hooking Up Automated Unit Tests (a simple approach, if one is to be had)

Okay so I've finally "seen the Light" about writing automated unit tests
ahead of time.

Question: What is a very simple approach that I can use to setting up
automated unit tests, considering that I don't want to (1) embed them in
production code at all (even with compiler directives to ignore them for
release builds); and (2) I don't want to jump into a full-blown unit testing
framework quite yet (like NUnit).

I'm looking to set up a very simple way to hook up automated unit-tests just
so I can get the hang of it and demonstrate it to my colleagues as a "here's
how simple it can be" demo. After that I'd likely be able to appreciate
NUnit (or similar) and sell others on the idea of adopting such a mainstream
testing framework.

We're developing all types of .NET application types except for mobile; Web
using VS 2008.

And yes, I have goodled this, but what I have come up with is hits for the
big frameworks... not helpful for my objective of seeing how simple it can
