Question about executing code in two forms simultaneously

The subject more or less explains it all. In my main form I will be executing a task that involvs a loop and can take a while. When the user starts this execution another small form will pop up with a progress bar on it. In order for this to work, I need the actual execution to occur in the main form at the same time the progress bar code is executing in the popup form.

However, if I use frmName.ShowDialog, the form calling that command "freezes" until the new form that is loaded is closed. How can I have the main form continue executing code after than line while the new form is running?
