See http://www.microsoft.com/data[^].

MDAC is the Microsoft Data Access Components, which include ADO, OLE DB, and ODBC. OLE DB providers are the "database drivers" which ADO.NET uses. Microsoft Jet is indeed a separate download, but is pretty small. See the Downloads section of the page linked above (which redirects, actually).

Without MDAC 2.6 or higher installed (MDAC 2.8 is the latest), you cannot use ADO.NET. The Microsoft Jet database engine installs the components necessary to use .mdb files. I'm not sure which one actually installs the Microsoft Jet OLE DB provider, but I'm betting it's the latter one.

MDAC will most likely be on the system. Less likely is that Jet will also be installed. Unfortunately, the .NET Framework setup includes neither technology (WTF | :WTF: ?). These aren't hard to package, though. The site I linked even discuss deployment.
