WPF/Silverlight SQL based Website

Hi,
I am new to WPF / Silverlight. I have a SQL Database and I want to create a Data rich web site. I absolutely love what I see currently with these tools, but I can not find any thorough tutorials on how to create a data bound WPF or Silverlight website. Is there somebody that can either help me by explaining how to access SQL through WPF OR Silverlight. If not is there ANY examples out there that can show how to access my data in SQL?

I found some examples out there, but they are difficult to understand. Any suggestion welcome!

Thanks in advance

Thanks tcarternyc,

Those are very helpful, but I still can't get my SQL database to display the content I need. I started working with Webservices, but am really struggling getting that part to work as well. Maybe I should wait untill there are more examples out there.
What do you think?

No idee mate :) Its my first post actually...

I have a working project here, its not a very "easy" thing to get working, i just did it, so i would recomend you to follow the example fully, using the same project names and so on. And use a new project! I tried implement this in my current sulution but that did not work out so i did it exactly as described and i got that working. My solution breaks if a enter a "search string" that wont get any hits. Please let me know how this turns out for you.

I am quite a newbee on silverligt/WSF and that things so i might have made some mistakes, but if i can help you out, let me know.

Cheers
