+Can I use Django with a pre-existing database?
+----------------------------------------------
+
+Yes. For the time being, you can write models that describe your
+already-existing database layout, and just point Django at your database.
+
+We also plan to make this even easier: Soon, Django will be able to introspect
+your database and generate models from it. See `Ticket 90`_.
