EASY - Bind a list box to a dataset - how to

Hello All,

Does anyone know how to bind a dataset to an asp listbox:

I have a dataset - which is a list of counties.
I need to dynamically drop the contents of the dataset (its only one column - "county")into the listbox
here a start and thanks for the help as always.

This is not working

 listBoxCounty.DataSource = dataSet
 listBoxCounty.DataMember = "County"
 listBoxCounty.DataTextField = "County"
 listBoxCounty.DataValueField = "County"

 listBoxCounty.DataSource = dataSet.Tables(0)
 listBoxCounty.DataMember = "County"
 listBoxCounty.DataTextField = "County"
 listBoxCounty.DataValueField = "County"

lstReports.ValueMember = "ReportsKey"
lstReports.DataSource = dsDataSet.Tables("Reports")
lstReports.DisplayMember = "ReportDescription"

Note: the order in which these are executed is also important
