Thank you for your explanation.
Attached please find the odbc.ini and freetds.conf and above is the result of 
isql calls the two servers I am trying to get to. K9Pad is XP SP2 & DogHouse is 
Win2k.

# The freetds.conf file is a replacement for the original interfaces

# FreeTDS will search for a conf file in the following order:

#     1) check if a file was set programatically via dbsetifile() and
#        is in .conf format, if so use that,
#
#     2) otherwise, if env variable FREETDSCONF specifies a properly 
#        formatted config file, use it,
#
#     3) otherwise, look in ~/.freetds.conf,
