System.InvalidOperationException when trying to Serialize struct

P: n/a
I get an System.InvalidOperationException when trying to Serialize a
struct that has a type refrenced from another library.

The exception is:
System.InvalidOperationException was unhandled
Message="Unable to generate a temporary class (result=1).\r\nerror
CS0012: The type 'SecureSpeak.Protocol.ssContactItem' is defined in an
assembly that is not referenced. You must add a reference to assembly

The object I am trying to serialize is pretty simple. Its a struct with
a few string types and another type that is defined in another Dll.
This other type in the Dll is marked as [Serializable]

What am I doing wrong here?? Its all .NET 2.0 in VS.NET 2005.
