Try use System.Data namespace.

The location of the DLL with be at something like:

C:\WINNT\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.0.3705\System.Data.dll

Where v1.0.3705 is the version of the Framework.

Hope this helps

ryancys pretty much already covered it.  The name space is System.Data.  Just add a reference to that in yor .NET project.  The two namespaces under System.Data that will interest you the most are System.Data.OleDb and System.Data.SqlClient.  OleDb is for Microsoft Access databases while SqlClient is for, well, SQL.

ADO.NET is quit extensive.  I would suggest purchasing a book to help you along.
