Each of the list boxes should be selectable. The HI method to do this
is to draw a broder around the list box that is currently selected.
Check out the PPC connection dialog for the correct use of two lists
with type ahead (I think) in a single dialog box. Pressing tab moves
between list boxes. Ahh, an even better example: check out the
no code, sorry.
