The problem is that I'm very new to the ODBC stuff. We have lots of expience with many other connection methods that don't revolve around MS products...

The ain't no suce beast as a "universal ODBC client", the unicersal bit 
is the ODBC API, and the interface between the driver manager and the 
driver. After that each driver is different, for its own database.

So for Informix, you need a informix driver, my postgres a postgres 
driver, and so on.
