Frontpage and Oracle?

Can pages authored with Frontpage be made to access Oracle databases? I haven't been able to find very much information on this topic.

So far, I understand that I will need to install the Microsoft ODBC driver for Oracle, and I assume that the driver will need to be installed on the Frontpage development machine as well as the IIS machine. Also, I assume that the driver will contain the necessary administrative components for selecting the Oracle ODBC driver both machines. Once selected, should I be able to see a "database connection" available within Frontpage?

I'm not familiar with ODBC, and my database experience thus far has been limited to Access. I assume that Frontpage is ODBC compliant. Does this mean that it will be able to recognize the fields and such in the Oracle database?

Thanks for any help in this matter. Also, if anyone knows of any online resources regarding Frontpage/Oracle integration, I would appreciate them.

What are you planning on doing with the databases? If you're trying to access data from them, you'll need to use some kind of server side scripting language (Cold Fusion, ASP, php) to output the information. You'll use ODBC to connect with the database, then use the server side script to display the data as HTML.
