Data Providers available for 1.1 framework

Is it possible to use (or even find to download) the .NET Data provider
for SQL server with the 1.1 Framework? I am keen to use both, and not
to upgrade to the Framework version 2. I can't seem to find a download
for the data provider on its own.

Greg,
This is a bit confusing; .NET 1.1 has the System.Data.SqlClient class built
in, for Sql Server Data Access. If you need an easy-to-use helper class to go
with this, you could look at the Microsoft Data Access Application Block v2
"SqlHelper" class, which comes in both VB.NET and C#.
Perhaps you could clarify exactly what is meant in this context by ".NET
Data Provider"?

Peter,

Thank you for replying. I'm managing (slowly - this is my first
dabbling with databases for a very long time) to get it working. What I
was referring to was the fact that the list of "data providers",
asccessed within the Data Link Properties contains only OLE DB
providers. The book that I am using to get me up to speed is written
for VS2005, which contains much better wizards etc. In its examples
there are the .NET data providers too.

By data provider I meant "a bridge between an application and a data
source." (MSDN).

Thanks again.

Greg.
