DataGrid in .Net (Select a Row)

I have VS .Net and am working with VB .Net.  I have a DataGrid on my form where I selected a pre-created style for it and set it to read-only.  What I want to do is have it only allow for a row to be selected, not individual cells.  I do not want the user to be able to select a cell, or multiple rows, just one row at a time.  I also need the ability to get DoubleClick to work like it works with the FlexGrid control back in VB6 (i.e. you can double-click on any cell and it will register a double-click event, with the DataGrid you have to double-click on the far left side of the control for it to register).  The code that I'm using to populate the DataGrid is below:

        Dim Adapter As OleDbDataAdapter
        Dim ds As DataSet
        Dim Sql As String

        'Perform the search
        Sql = "SELECT * FROM Customers WHERE FirstName LIKE '" & txtFirstName.Text & "%' AND LastName LIKE '" & txtLastName.Text & "%'"
        Adapter = New OleDbDataAdapter(Sql, cn)
        ds = New DataSet()
        Adapter.Fill(ds, "Customers")

        'Load the results into the datagrid
        Try
            grdResults.SetDataBinding(ds, "Customers")
        Catch ex As Exception
            'Don't worry about a blank dataset
        End Try

This works fine to load the results in, but right now the best I can do toward what I want is to set the DataGrid ("grdResults") to ReadOnly and then have a button on the form that checks "grdResults.CurrentRowIndex()" to determine what has been selected.  Double-clicking doesn't work, and I can't get it to select the entire row when a cell is clicked on.

I am up for suggestions on other controls to use (as long as they come with VS .Net Enterprise Edition).  I would prefer to use a .Net Framework component over a COM control. Any help is appreciated.
