I have sql installed on my development (local) workstation. I have the test server for dwmx2k (patched) configured so it's hitting my local copy of IIS. I'd like to define stuff so that, while working against my test server the pages connect to my local (test) db. Do i have any choice except to be manually editing the db connections for which ever mode i want to be operating in?

I have several projects that I run that use development and production areas and backends.  This is something that I do in order to make that distinction without having to re-write any code or even modify it until the website/applicaton's release.

Depending on the technology that you're using the syntax may differ drastically so I'll only include pseudo code in this answer.

What you want to do is have the page(s) identify where they are being run. (i.e. local or remote)

$location = path for local testing

if($where_am_I == $location){
    connection code to local database
}
else{
    connection code to remote database
}
