FYI, the next version of mxODBC will support DB/2 on all
platforms. It won't be freeware anymore, but in return you'll
get better support for Unicode and other ODBC 3.5 features.

The next round of mx.Modules will be published in the first
quarter of 2001. Until then you can use the existing mxODBC 1.1.1
which will work nicely on Windows and with some effort on Unix
for DB/2 too -- it'll give you a consistent interface to rely
on fo Windows and all supported Unix platforms.
