Web Matrix/VB Express ?

Hi:

I need to get started building a .NET application
that connects to a MySQL database.

Neither of WebMatrix or VB Express 2005 seem to offer
a way to connect to MySQL.

What .NET development environment do I need for this requirement ?

Thanks,
Phil Miller

Hi:

Thanks, I downloaded this software.

Are there any other system requirements
to establish a connection in VB.NET to MySQL,
other than calling: MySQLConnection( )  ?

Thanks,

Here is a great reference for MySql (and a great place for MySql answers):

The MySqlDataAdapter Class
