Using MySQL in C# (libraries)

I'm new to using Microsoft .NET and C#.
I tried to connect to a MySql database (version 5) via MySQL Connector/NET

Here is my code snippet:

public void MYSQL_Connect()
MySql.Data.MySqlClient.MySqlConnection conn;
string myConnectionString;

myConnectionString = "server=;uid=root;" +

conn = new MySql.Data.MySqlClient.MySqlConnection();
conn.ConnectionString = myConnectionString;
catch (MySql.Data.MySqlClient.MySqlException ex)
} // MYSQL_Connect

I got the error message:
"The type or namespace name 'MySql' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)"

Then I inserted the following line at the beginning:
using MySql::Data;

Now the compiler says:
"Alias 'MySql' not found"

How can I tell the C# compiler to know the MySQL libraries?

Hope someone can help me and give some useful hints.

Thanks in advance.
