I'm running python 2.2 on Redhat 7.2 and I need to access SQL Server 2000.
The command are simple SQL queries and updates.  We don't even use joins.

There seem to be several common methods for doing so:
1. Use the python application at with Sybase ASE 11.9.2
2. Use the python application at with FreeTDS.
3. Use mxODBC with iODBC
4. Use mxODBC with unixODBC

It is not clear to me if I will still need to use Sybase ASE or FreeTDS with

Which option do people recommend?  Are there any other options?
