It should "work" automatically.
However you may need to look out for problems not associated with the DSN 

I have experienced situations where the DSN itself is working fine but a 
Windows program doesn't work because it is looking for information in the 
registry, which it doesn't find (since that isn't where unixODBC holds it)

What is the result of export WINEDEBUG=+odbc; wine <myprogram>?
