[Mono-list] Mono System.Data.Odbc question

I was much impressed with Mono 1.1.13 and Monodevelop.
I have been able to take several MS Visual Studio projects, convert them 
to Mono, compile, and run them. Heck, even a project with a Windows 
<http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/#> Form object compiled and ran with a 
functional SWF popup object.
Now I am trying to access a dBase file using Mono.
(This is an actual C# .NET assignment from work, and I was hoping Mono 
would be the sandbox where I could learn how to do C# .NET stuff.)
Mono failed. Here is the console output run results:

System.DllNotFoundException: libodbc.so
in (wrapper managed-to-native) System.Data.Odbc.libodbc:SQLAllocHandle 
in <0x00084> System.Data.Odbc.OdbcConnection:Open ()

I did put symbolic links to libodbc.so.1.0.0 as libodbc.so in the gac 
directory with the System.Data.dll's. Any other ideas?  Rick
