Is it different? Not any more than Access differs from MSSQL - it does have some features that other RDBMSs doesn't have, like the LIMIT-clause.

I usually connect (from ASP) using a connectionstring like this:
strConn = "Driver={mySQL};Server=localhost;Option=16834;Data base=xxxxxx;UID=xxxxxx;PWD=xxxxxx;"
