Database connection classes for a C# pocket PC application

P: n/a
Hi all,
I'm writing in Visual C# (of Visual Studio .NET 2003 Professional
Edition package) a program that must run in a pocket PC (with Pocket PC
2002 installed), so when I created the project I selected "Visual C#"
as "Project Type" and "Smart Device Application" as "Model".

This program must connect to an Access database (stored in the Pocket
PC too) and read, edit and update its tables' values.

To my unspeakable horror, I noticed that the ADO.NET namespace
System.Data.OleDb and its classes (as OleDbConnection) aren't supported
in .NET Compact Framework and Windows CE!!!

I also noticed that the other ADO.NET namespace (System.Data.SqlClient)
and its classes (as SqlConnection) are obviously supported, but I have
read in MSDN library that they can connect only to SQL Server databases
(not Access databases).

Can you tell me what kind of namespaces and classes I must use to
interface to an Access database in a .NET C# Pocket PC application?

Thank you very much
