[Mono-devel-list] Using OleDB / Access database with Asp.Net

Hi fellows,
in the end I'm having a running version of mono on my linux box. I'm 
very interested on Asp.Net porting, 'cause I'd like to share my windows 
webapps also under linux.

I use the XSP server. I got a simple asp.net page with some buttons and 
textboxes working.
First: are there problems with that? Maybe is better to use Apache and 
mod_mono? 'Cause if it's the same thing, then I'll keep on using XSP.

As you can understand, I think I'll never develop an app without a 
database on the backside. So, I first tried (just because I was curious) 
a OleDB connection to a remote MSSQL, but that didn't, as specified in 
documentation, works.

So I tried a simpler OleDB connection to an access database file.. but 
also this one doesn't works.

Following are a few lines on my page:

private void Page_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
            // Put user code to initialize the page here
            OleDbConnection cn = new OleDbConnection();
            cn.ConnectionString = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0; 
Data Source=" + Server.MapPath("db.mdb");
            OleDbCommand cmd = new OleDbCommand("SELECT * FROM tMedias",cn);
            OleDbDataAdapter da = new OleDbDataAdapter(cmd);
            DataSet ds = new DataSet();
            this.DataGrid1.DataSource = ds;

Probably the provider is completely wrong: I refer, under VS/win to a 
Jet provider.. what do I have to use? If anyone have working samples... :)
