how to add oracle support using entity datal model in visual studio 2010

hi experts,

I am using visual studio 2010 professional that just was released yesterday.

I'm working on a wpf app. When i add a data source and choose entity data model when i'm in the connection properties wizard under data source the default is microsoft's .Net Framework Data Provider for SQL Server.    

Can someone tell my why .Net Framework Data Provider for Oracle is not listed?

I'm trying to use oracle and that is the provider i normally used with oracle when i was using visual studio 2008.

Which provider is best to use to connect to oracle with entity data model?

When i am adding a data source and I choose dataset instead of entity data model it lists .Net Framework Data Provider for Oracle there.  

So i wonder why that provider is available for the dataset option but not for the entity data model?

Can anyone help? Which provider did you guys use to connect to oracle using the Entity Data Model?
