Hi Nick,

Thanks for the clarification.  Makes more sense now.
I was looking at this all wrong.

But as a bonus, if I ever need to talk to a database that is remote to the 
linux box, I'm all set.  ;-)

Just need to find the appropriate MySQL driver for Windows Server 2008 and 
figure out how to install it...
(I don't do Windows.)
