[Mono-dev] Problem with System.Data on linux mono

I'm just starting to work with mono on linux using C#. I have mono 
installed on my linux machine but when I run my C# program it gives me 
the following error:

Test.cs(2) error CS0234: The type or namespace name `Data' could not be 
found in namespace `System'
Test.cs(2) error CS0246: The namespace `System.Data' can not be found 
(missing assembly reference?)
    Try using -r:System.Data

It's because I have using System.Data; in my Test.cs. using System; is 
ok though. Is it because the mono installation that was done on my linux 
machine wasn't configured to support System.Data? How would I update the 
mono installation so it supports System.Data?
