What is the best way to connect to a SQL 2000 Database.

I am building a project to give end users access to a SQL database so that they can do updates, inserts, and ect..

I am use to writing ASP and not as familiar with VB.net.  Usually I connect using ADODB object.  But I know that VB.net give you the option to connect with OdbcConnection or OleDbConnection object.

My project has multiple forms and is using a lot of Stored Procedure and some inline SQL in my code.

So what would be the best way to connect and be able to use that connection through out the project?  And if using the VB connection object is the best way to go, then what would be a good link or resource on using these objects?

I hope that this is not too much of a newbie question.

Thanks for any advice.

Well, I'd do the following:

-Create a new instance of a sqlConnection object in a module of your project.
-In the first form of your proyect you open the connection.
-Whenever you are going to use a connection, set the connection property of the objects to your module connection.

Use SQLConnection object it is fater compared to ODBC and OLEDB because it natively connects to SQL Server
