Solving complex equations

Dear all,

If I have a complex equation in the form of
a+b I + c+d I == 3+ 4 I
where a, b, c, and d are all assumed to be real.

How do I tell Mathematica 6 to separate the real and imaginary parts to make
two equations in the form of
a + c == 3, and
b + d == 4.

I need this to apply it on a long list of equations.

Thanks in advance!
