Data App Block under .NET2.0

Using the Data Application Block under  VS03/.net1.1 was pretty straight forward...just include a reference to the correct DLL. That's changed with 2.0/VS05. It looks like you have to run an external app to create a .config to include in the Solution but I'm having problems finding the root readme that takes everything from the beginning.

Would really much rather have a simple reference to a given .dll if possible.

    Add an item to your project and select App.Config from the templates.

    Thx...getting closer.

    At the 4Guys explaination ( they say a file named 'dataConfiguration.config' should be created. It's not. Should I try creating it manually? In the GUI i'm able to get a Test Connection to succeed but without dataConfig having been created.
