[unixODBC-support] Trouble connecting to SQL Server database

I've recently installed the unixODBC driver and FreeTDS provider in 
Mandrake 10 using their default packages.  After configuring a SQL 
Server database, and attempting to execute a query, I happily get back 
the results.

However, when I use isql to test the ODBC part of things, I get the 
following error:

[IM004][unixODBC][Driver Manager]Driver's SQLAllocHandle on 
[ISQL]ERROR: Could not SQLConnect

Now, the only fixes for this problem I've seen using google involve DB2 
(setting the instance in the environment), and so I'm stumped as to what 
I might need to do for a SQL Server database.  Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance,
