LINQ will not work on .NET 2.0.

You require .NET framework 3.5 for LINQ to work properly.

but in some sites it is mentioned that it also works in visual studio 2005 , if we download something else

the Linq preview was an early version for us to test before VS2008 beta was available but was never meant to be used in a production environement (and is not supported).
I would suggest you to install Dot NET framework 3.5 and use Visual C# Express 2008.

This way you can use LINQ.
