Remove seconds from a date

I have a date datatype in C# that is a date and time.  I need to remove the seconds from the date, so that if it is

12/29/2005 5:36:54 it would be 12/29/2005 5:36:00.  How can I do this?

take the variable that is of data type datetime, and set the seconds to 0:

DateTime v = DateTime.Now;
v.Second = 0;

Actually that answer doesn't work.  That property is read only.

This should be better then:
DateTime v = DateTime.Now;
v = v.Subtract(new TimeSpan(0,0,0,v.Second,0));
