Is there a DBFactory for DataAdapters in ASP.NET 2.0 / C#?

I have a webpage that creates and fills DataSets using:

    string connString = "Dsn=TEST";
    string sqlSelect = "SELECT * FROM orders";
    OdbcConnection conn = new OdbcConnection(connString);
    DataSet dsOrders = new DataSet();
    OdbcDataAdapter ad = new OdbcDataAdapter(sqlSelect, conn);
    ad.Fill(dsOrders, "Orders");

I want to generalize it by being able to pass the ProviderType during runtime so I dont have to change the code to SqlDataAdapter for when I move this to a SQl Server instead of ODBC. Is there a way to do this?
