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
http://www.object-craft.com.au/projects/mssql/ with Sybase ASE 11.9.2
2. Use the python application at
http://www.object-craft.com.au/projects/mssql/ 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
iODBC/unixODBC.

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

Thanks
Sandeep
