Visual studio 2005 supports .net framework 3.0 , does it also supports the linq projects. I have downloaded some of the dll like LinqBridge.dll, System.Data.Linq.dll and added as a reference in my project but still I cant use linq features. I have also tried by installing LINQ Preview (May 2006).msi in my pc but still it fails. Is it by any other approach that I can make the linq to play with Visual studio 2005. Thanks in advance

We need to install .NET Framework 3.5. Here is a related thread in ASP.NET forum, http://forums.asp.net/p/1313885/2607848.aspx#2607848. Also here is a good article on this topic, http://www.c-sharpcorner.com/UploadFile/nsatheeshk/Linq06302006030119AM/Linq.aspx.
However, I still recommend you use VS2008. Using LINQ in VS2005 may have many unexpected issues.
