Adding Links from a second database

Adding Links from a second database
Is there a way to integrate data coming from a different database so I can build a single page from two data sources?

Basically, I would like to add a "featured links" section above my regular links. The link information for the featured links would come from a seperate database that is maintained with MS Access. I can output it into different formats including the same format that Links 2.0 uses. Can I pull the data into the Links SQL page (static) from the Links 2.0 or other datafile? Unfortunately I can't just import it and combine the two databases, they need to be seperate because of maintenance issues.
