What is your code for Sybase? I have it working just fine, and it's
the best module I've found that's free.

Freetds is a complete pile though. I run into freedtds errors
constantly..... I think the problem is actually mssql, and freetds
can't handle all the crazy random things it does to prevent non-M$
products from using it....... oh well.
