I did get the Actual drivers working (in demo mode), but in my mind, that
defeats the purpose of an open source project such as FreeTDS. I don't want
to have to pay licensing fees for a driver that will be used only
occasionally on quite a few machines. I will if it comes to that, but
FreeTDS seemed to be what I was looking for.
