windows form full screen "kiosk" mode?

I am writing a .NET windows forms application that uses the MapPoint active X control. This application will be displayed on a large plasma screen connected to an XP machine.  What I want to do is have the application take up the entire screen in the same manner that happens when you run IE in "kiosk mode".  the screen will basically just be showing a giant map, with a menu of controls along the right hand side, to be displayed in a conference room.

Can someone provide me some pointers on how to make my application run in "kiosk mode"?  Googling for this doesn't seem to be producing any good answers.
