How to list all installed data sources?

I'm writing a program that allows users to import their data into our
system. The data can come from any datasource installed on the users PC,
eg Access, Excel, SQL, Text Files, etc..

Is there a way to get a list of all the installed data sources? I'd like
to be able to provide a list like the one used in DTS (Sql2000). Is this
possible?

I believe they all listed in this registry location:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBCINST.INI\ODBC Drivers
