drawing and moving shapes

Hello newsgroup,

I am pretty new to .NET and need some advise on
how to approach to the following:

I have to create an application with a drawing surface, where some
predefined shapes (picture boxes with icons in it) can be dropped and moved
around.
This should work like some MS Visio on a very basic level.
The shapes should be dragged from a list.
How would I do something like this?
Maybe there is some sample out there?

Thanks in advance for your help
