Well, Type.GetType is roughly the equivalent of Class.forName, but Activator.CreateInstance is roughly the equivalent of Class.newInstance.
Note that in order to get a Type object for a type in an assembly other than either the calling one or mscorlb, you need to either load the assembly yourself and use Assembly.GetType, or include the full name of the type including assembly information in the call to Type.GetType.
