The TDS protocol changes slowly.  You're perfectly fine connecting with
7.0 or 8.0 to a SQL Server 2005 machine.  

FreeTDS currently implements almost none of the protocol changes
introduced with 2005.  That only means that features introduced with 2005
that rely on those changes -- e.g. MARS -- will not be available to you.
