MSDE is the Microsoft Desktop Engine, and shares most of its components with SQL Server. This can be a hefty install, though. It is definitely faster than Access (and has specialized classes for access it through ADO.NET using the System.Data.SqlClient namespace elements) but it's only free if you have a license for a qualifying product like SQL Server, Access, FrontPage (last I checked), Visual Studio .NET, and perhaps a few others. You can find more information at http://www.microsoft.com/sql/msde/[^].

As far as the speed of Access is concerned, you have to take account for a few things. First, to access Access you must use the generic OLE DB support in ADO.NET (using the Access OLE DB provider) using the System.Data.OleDb namespace elements. This provides generic access through the abstract OLE DB provider implementations so some things you can do in Access won't be possible through ADO.NET. Second, it depends on whether you use a DataSet (think of it as a disconnected recordset) or an OleDbReader. A DataSet takes a while to construct (less if you use a strongly-typed DataSet which you can create in VS.NET easily enough) but provides many advantages like serialization, filtering, relationships, referential integrity, and more. If you use an OleDbReader, it will increase access times but then you must parse and relate (if necessary) any data you read yourself.
