inline assembler & opcodes

my assembler reference tells me, that the line

db 8Eh, 0D8h

should resemble

mov ds, ax

...the problem: the VC++ inline assembler doesn't accept this line...
If I change it to

db 0x8Eh, 0xD8h

or

db 0x8ED8

it still doesn't work...Error:

E:\cpp\myProject\source.cpp(211) : error C2400: inline assembler syntax error in 'opcode'; found 'constant'

So: how do I user opcodes in VC++ inline assembler ?

thx a lot :)
