Making a connection to a Paradox database

How can one make a connection to a Paradox database? I cannot find odbcconnection for this one.
You should use the OleDbConnection with a connection string like the following:

OleDbConnection cn = new OleDbConnection
("Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=c:\somepath;Extended 
Properties=Paradox 5.x;");

See http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;326548#6 for more information.
