Adding files/folders to VS project

Just a quick question, I don't know if I'm missing something; is there a way to add a directory structure of source files to Visual Studio (I have .NET 2003) so that it creates the same structure in the project? Say I have these files:

source\gui\window.cpp
source\gui\button.cpp
source\main\main.cpp

and want to retain this structure in the project - two folders named gui and main and the files inside. Do I really have to create the folders manually and put the files into them?

I remember reading something about the next version of Visual Studio that said that it will treat the directories you give it directly, with all files inside, as a project. That sounds great, I'm getting tired of this...

Any help would be appreciated.
