I looked at both of these links and i am still very confused about this.

Both of the link were talking about XML databinding..

I am looking to Pull Data From a SQL DB.

I am not using Telerik Controls.
I guess i cannot really understand how this works because all of these examples are using XML Queries and i want to use SQL.

Is it possible that i can see an example of an actual grid with the SQL query of

SELECT     item_id, item_desc, extended_desc
FROM         dbo.p21_view_inv_mast
WHERE     (delete_flag = 'N')

and the connection string.
the SQL server just make it SQL_Server

Show us your code, we can take it further from there.
In my knowledge, Silverlight can not directly connect to databases. The best way of getting data in a silverlight app is to use WCF services.
