    I use DBD::ODBC to connect to MS SQL Server 7 from WINNT to WINNT.

    No problems here.

    However, as httptech said, you will have to get the ODBC driver for your platform.

    Here's one possible source:

    I really don't know how good this product is but a colleague of mine pointed me to it afew days ago.

    OpenRDA is a commercial product that maybe could solve your problem.
    Here are instructions (pretty old) on how to do it from Linux.
    Good luck.
