Establishing a connection between ASP.NET and MySQL

Can you please tell me how to establish a connection between ASP.NET and MySQL? I am using Visual Studio .NET to create an ASP.NET Web site. Do I need any extra "plug-ins" to make the connection? Thanks for your help.
The easy way is to go to the Mono project Web site, and check its MySQL data provider. You can use it just like the SQL data provider that comes with .NET. You have many other providers there also at http://www.go-mono.org/ado-net.html. An interesting article explaining how to use MySQL from .NET can be found at https://www.mysql.com/articles/dotnet/.
