My advise is to slow down and don't panic. FreeTDS will allow you to get
at your MSSQL Server data from the linux box.
The setup instructions are all in the INSTALL & README files. You'll
find some pointers in the FAQ at www.freetds.org Heed the advice to pick
up the latest CVS version in lieu of the 0.5 "release".
