Thanks! We're looking for open source solutions. I've tried unixODBC but
Easysoft ODBC-ODBC Bridge for linux/unix to access MS SQL is comercial.
DataDirect is also on my list. Unfortunately it's comercial too. Then I
heard FreeTDS, hope it works out for us :).

Ah, compiled-in defaults, that makes more sense to me now.
Thanks a bunch for the explanation. I appreciate it.
