Goto the MySQL site; on top of the MySQL driver that is there, there is also the ADO.NET connector: http://www.mysql.com/products/connector/ that has a plugin for visual studio

But, really, as long as the driver is installed on the server you could get away with using this as a connection string:
driver={MySQL ODBC 3.51 Driver};server=server;uid=user;pwd=password;databa se=database;option=16387;port=3306;

And then just use the ODBC objects found in System.Data.Odbc ;]
