XML, Serialization for Windows Applications

I am using VB.NET in Visual Studion 2003

I am going to have to build an application that uses XML, Serialization and
display. I have been asked to implement it using XML. I have done some
reading and am trying to put the pieces together before coding but never
having worked seriously with XML, I need some direction.

I will be generating an XML of the contents of a CDs and DVDs. The
hierarchy will contain file attributes in addition to file and folder names –
think Windows Explorer. The only difference between windows explorer and my
app would be that I would have to serialize and de-serialize it. I would
prefer binary serialization so that I could BLOB it into an access database.

Question1: My XML will contain File Attribute TAGS (DateCreated,
DateModified etc). How do I NOT display some tags it in the tree view? Once
again referring to Windows Explorer – the attributes are on the right hand
pane only. I know I can use a CSS or XSLT in a browser to display what I want
but this will be a Windows Application. How can I achieve a similar

Question2: Is there any Event that can display the ‘hidden’ attributes of a
file OnClick of a File Node?

Question3: How do I search for File Name in the XML? Do I use XML Technology
XPATH and stuff? If yes can anyone give me an example? I guess if I found
something matching, I would have to select the File Node and display it’s
attributes in the right pane or would the display be any different?

Any and all guidance/comment/URLs will be highly appreciated.
