Is this exactly what you're typing into ij?  If so, I think the problem is that
you are missing a colon in the connection url, after the word "net":

I tried doing these two statements ("driver" and "connect") in ij without the
colon, and the error that I get is, indeed, "No suitable driver".  However,
once I put the colon in, everything worked...

Hope that helps, but feel free to post again if not...
