I want to create a screensaver that will display random words from a database.

I'm fine with the database stuff but need ideas on how i write something that can be selected from the windows screensaver dialog.  I also need a know how to create a settings page to alter how the screensave would operate.  And finally how to let windows call my screensaver ?

Hope you can help.
