DSN'sby Anonymous Monk

Anonymous Monk has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I am currently at the design stage of a system that will have parts of it written in perl. this system will be accessing multiple database servers which will be able to be added and removed from the system at anytime. Because of this I don't want to be giving the server with the system on it a dsn for every database server so what I am asking is .... is there a way of just reading details of a server from a database (no probs there) and then just from that info making contact to the external DB server. eg dynamically creating dsn's?
(hope this made sense)
btw this system will be run under a windows environment (I would rather *nix but this was not possible with some of the specifications)
Thanks in advance.
