SQL Server 2005 connection with vs 2003 .net framework 1.1

I am writing a vb.net app using VS 2003. Is it possible to connect to a sql server 2005 database using .net framework 1.1 or does the entire app have to be created in VS 2005? The reason this question comes up is because I get an error when trying to establish a connection to the sql server 2005 database.

An unhandled exception of type 'System.ArgumentException' occurred in system.data.dll

Additional information: Keyword not supported: 'driver'.
