With the code below...
    /* 
     * Name: sSendPacket
     * Programmer: ***********.
     * Version: Janurary 2, 2006.
     * Description: This procedure sends the given data packet to the server.
    */
    public void sSendPacket(byte[] TheData)
    {
        MyGlobalSocket.BeginSend(TheData, 0, TheData.Length, SocketFlags.None,
            new AsyncCallback(sSendCallback), null);
    }

    /* 
     * Name: sSendCallback
     * Programmer: ***********.
     * Version: Janurary 2, 2006.
     * Description: This procedure lets us know that the packet has gone through the system.
    */
    public void sSendCallback(IAsyncResult MyAsyncResult)
    {
        /* Complete the send operation by ending the send. */
        int TheBytesSent = MyGlobalSocket.EndSend(MyAsyncResult);
    }
... if I did this...
void sSendEmAll()
{
     sSendPacket(ThePack);
     sSendPacket(TheIt);
     sSendPacket(TheThree);
}
... where the three separate parameters are byte arrays. Won't the sSendCallBack (when it gets the first pack) kill the second and third packets since its ending the send?

It's my understanding that calling BeginSend creates a new thread, so by calling it three times you will have three independent threads. Thus the EndSend is tied only to its respective BeginSend.

In general, when you call an asynchronous method (as in BeginSend), you create a new ThreadPool thread each time you begin the delegate invocation. See here for an overview of asynchronous methods.
