What is Driven test and how to implement it?

I have been generating few different types of
Rational scripts to automate our financial application
1) For checking navigation of the pages (ie , if
save or cancel or hyperlinks in page then it should
navigate to particular page)
2) For checking validation in the pages
3) For checking default vaules in the pages
4) For check data in the database wheather the
vaules are being inserted properly or not.
5) Some scripts are generating to implement
bussiness rules and some of complex test cases
independently and we are using moduler scripts for
doing this automation.
There are lot of changes are happening to our
application becz of client need, each time we are
manually modifying the scripts with respect to the
requests. It is consuming lot of man hrs to modify the
scripts with respect to the changes.
Yesterday when i am going through some frameworks
documentation i have found concept of Data driven
tests. now we are not doing here. I getting doubt that
the Data driven tests will reduce lot of time in the
regression tests, instead of playing back my old
scripts with the proper changes
I am very new to this testing environment,
suddenly i got shifted to this side becz of my boss
request and i have done R&D from that time and have
been implementing the above generalised scripts .
Pls let me know am i going in right way or not ?
and tell me about Data driven test with an example.

There is a lot of reading required and here are some documents
Find out the incredible job done by Paul Downes and other good folks
from this user group...Try to develop a skeleton and a process before
you start Automation. Start with naming conventions..
Make some scripts reusable. Write functions wherever you need
Don't start with the whole nine yards. Start with a sample test case
and add iterations as you go...
