Heterogeneous connection on Oracle require ODBC driver. To compile
FreeTDS ODBC driver under FC3 (Fedora Core 3) you need unixODBC and
unixODBC-devel package. After these package are installed you can
compile FreeTDS. You have to use 0.63 (now in RC but don't worry nothing
changed in ODBC and we are in RC since a month). I would suggest to
produce RPM packages using
rpmbuild -ta freetds-0.63RC8.tar.gz
If you want I can provide packages compiled for 32 bit intel
