Following the Hands on lab of CAB i discovered a very interesting programming technique first i don't Known (i'm a novice !): The MVC pattern. I create a Business Entities, a service and a view for my project and work fine. All right. My doubt is whene i receive data from a typed DataSet.
For you, is a typed DataSet an Entitie (it give me a UserTable class with all i need!) or is better to create an entitie class (eg. for User Table) and also a collection class for the users?
I know this in not pertinent with Cab, but i want use it with cab so if you can help me i appreciate.

This is also an interesting question for me. Maybe use datasets trough out “Data access logic components” and then fill entities classes in cab modules??

A typed dataset is a business entity. I'm a big fan of typed datasets and with the improvements in .NET 2.0 they are even better. I'd say use them. Here is a good whitepaper that explains the pros and cons of the different type of business entities you can construct in .NET.
