My Unix admin is giving me a hard time saying that FreeTDS is not for Unix
(aix).  Can you kindly confirm that it is?

Then you'll be glad to hear that this is changing somewhat with PHP 5 
and the MySQL client libraries will no longer be bundled. ;)

Not unless you want to use the odbc_* functions instead of mssql_*.
