Read file bigger than 2 Gb

Hello,
Is there a way to read files bigger than 2.147 Gb using Visual Basic 5.
The Get statement accept only a "long" variable as Record Number; is there
any Windows API enabling the possibility to reab 4 Gb file under W98 (or
more under Windows XP) ??
I use already a windows api to get the file size over 2.xxx Gb
(FindFirstFileA).
Thanks for any answer.
Yves
