I had the same problem for DB2 Express on Ubuntu 8.10 some weeks ago when I tried to connect to the sample database SAMPLE.

The solution was to set the DSN to the name of the database, i.e. SAMPLE. It did not work when I set DSN to myDSN etc. I could not find anything about this in the IBM documentation and I cannot remember having to do it for DB2 on Windows a couple of years ago. 

Here are the ini files:

Description    = descr
Driver        = /home/db2inst1/sqllib/lib/libdb2.so
Driver64    = 
Setup        = 
Setup64        = 
UsageCount    = 
CPTimeout    = 
CPReuse        = 
Fileusage    = 1
Dontdlclose    = 1

Driver= DB2
Description = DB2 Database

Hope it works, but let me know if you find a way to use an arbitrary dsn.
