Using VBScript I need to write data to an Access database on a remote machine.

At the moment, I have the script below, which works perfectly, but requires me to manually set up the ODBC first.

What is the best way to automate being able to write to the remote database?

500 points, because it is fairly urgent.
Const adOpenStatic = 3
Const adLockOptimistic = 3
Const adUseClient = 3
Set objConnection = CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
Set objRecordset = CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
objConnection.Open "DSN=Test;"
objRecordset.CursorLocation = adUseClient
strIPaddr = ""
strComputerName = "test"
strSerialNumber = "90556"
strLocation = "administration"
strYear = "2009"
strInformation = "This is a test to see if the script works"
objRecordset.Open "SELECT * FROM Computers" , objConnection, adOpenStatic, adLockOptimistic
    objRecordset("ComputerName") = strComputerName
    objRecordset("YearAcquired") = strYear
    objRecordset("Location") = strLocation
    objRecordset("Information") = strInformation
    objRecordset("SerialNumber") = strSerialNumber
