Inserting data using LINQ

I would like to know how can I use LINQ to insert data into a table.
I have built a registration form with lots of textboxes as input and I'd like to give a shot to use linq. I have no problem using stored proc in inserting records but I'd like to give LINQ a try
to see if it is better.

Please sshow code and example how is it done. Also what is the advantage if I switch to this method other than the stored procedure approach.

these are the two commands most needed for making  a insertion

InsertOnSubmit(Obj);
SubmitChanges();
