Debugging dmp file


I am given a .dmp file to anaylse it to find out the crash reason of an application. Not too familiar with debugging dmp files but i reckon i need some symbols -.pdb file, map file, exe of the application etc ?- i have access to whatever needed, but i am not fully sure what i need.

the code for the app is C++ written using VS 6.0.

i think i can debug the dmp file using VS 2003, correct?
can i debug it with VS 6.0, as so far, i saw nothing useful when i open up the with VS 6.0.

when i open up with VS 2003, it brings up some assembly code, nothing about the actual code of the app. But in call stack it shows a dll of the application.

Could someone assit here? do i need some other designated debugging tools? Thanks!
