If you use the iODBC SDK binaries supplied by Apple, you need to write 
your own setup panel.

If you use the iODBC SDK binaries supplied by OpenLink, there is a 
generic panel that gets used when there is no driver specific setup 
routine registered. This panel is a simple key=value pair editor, so you 
can setup any driver with it as long as it documents the keys you need 
to fill. The OpenLink branded iODBC SDK can be downloaded from:


Note that the panel code is only available in binary form and is 
currently not part of the iODBC.org source release. It is scheduled to 
be integrated into iODBC in either this coming release or the next.
