Thanks for the replies. I looked into "Mastering C Sharp Database Programming" and found a little sample db program in it. But it was a console prog and i was looking for a GUI example. Gonna check what's in "Beginning C# 2008 Database" next..

Not so sure that the link you provided will be very helpful considering the environment it lists is "VS.NET (beta 1), NT 4.0, Win95/98/2000". The comments indicate that the code he uses hasn't even been possible to write since it left beta...
I feel the OP's pain; there are a lot of books and sites out there, but it's hard to find a good one.
