Student/Developer experimenting with MySQL & VB.NET connectivity

This question has probably been posted a thousand times- but still all my searches have eluded me so far. I'm a student working on developing a school managament and evaluation system. I've been familiarizing myself with MySQL over the past few months and have mastered it quite a bit. The server's on a Mandrake Linux platform and the workstations run on Win2K. I'd managed to communicate between MySQL and VB6 without a hitch - but now my employer wants to all the workstation clients to .NET. I've spent numerous sleepless and to-the-point-of-tearing-off-all-my-hair nights trying to get VB.NET connect to the db and execute the queries successfully. Sorry to say all my programming skills have given out on me.
Could anyone please show me an example of a basic connection using the .NET connectivity package (MySql.Data.MySqlClient) and a few querries (SELECT, INSERT) etc. The code should be in VB.NET only.
