Is it possible to have a BindingSource with DataGridView when each column shows one object in a list?

I'm building a windows forms application in C# using Visual Studio 2008, LINQ to SQL, .NET Framework 3.5
I'm trying to find an easy way to bind a list of Business Objects to a DataGridView where each column represent an instance of my class and each row shows one property value of that object. The user can modify the properties values using the datagridview cells.
(This is essentially a transposed table)

Here is an example of the table:
            Model Set 1      Model Set 2      Model Set 3
Model Set Name                        
Calculate            TRUE      TRUE      TRUE
Default Rate            Or Vector      Or Vector      Or Vector
Default Units                        
Prepay Rate            Or Vector      Or Vector      Or Vector
Prepay Units                        
Severity Rate            5            6             7
Severity Rate                        
MappingRule01                         

What is the easiest way to accomplish this task? I thought about using a DataTable instead of a BindingList, but I'm not sure if that's easier because I'll have to code all the logic to populate the ModelSet objects, Remove and Add etc. I think it will be easier to accomplish using a BindingList but I might be wrong.



// This is my class to be displayed in each column
public class ModelSet 
{
        public int ID { get; set; } 
        public string ModelSetName { get; set; } 
        public string DealName { get; set; } 
        public string TrancheName { get; set; } 
        public bool Calculate { get; set; } 
        public string LossVector { get; set; } 
        public string PrepayVector { get; set; } 
        public string SeverityVector { get; set; } 
        public string RuleSet01	{ get; set; }
}

No, the BindingList is precisely the correct tool in this case...
By default it will expose all public properties.... so to hide a property you can exclude it from the DataGridView (or convert the property to the method..)
