Hi All,

I'm a bit confused as to how exactly to use unixODBC.  Basically, I've  
got it installed (sans GUI) on Mac OS 10.5.6 Intel.  What I can't  
figure out is how to acquire and install drivers for MS SQL Server.   
Do they exist natively?  I see that the JDBC drivers exist freely (on  
the Microsoft site), but are there no economical (i.e. free) ODBC  
counterparts anywhere?

I also see conflicting documentation regarding whether or not unixODBC  
ships with or without ODBC drivers and the actual capacity in which it  
is to actually serve.  Can someone shed some light (in 10 words or  
less) on how to use unixODBC to connect to an MS SQL Server?
