[freetds] ASA 7 Cannot Connect - Please Help!

I guess I should have clarified:

>From the log file that I created using dbisql.exe I noticed that the db that
I'm wanting to connect to isn't started and the dbisql.exe app must start it
using the file location that I specify.

Can I pass in the file location of the target db using FreeTDS?  How would I
get this working in a *nix environment?  I've got ODBC connectors on the
Win32 platform that are doing everything perfectly, but not on my RedHat

You're doing the right thing.  Assuming the server is running, you should
get a connection (or at least an error).  

If you've double checked everything, I guess the only refuge would be a
tcpdump of the dbisqle.exe session and of the tsql session.
