You can use DBI + DBD::ODBC, or the MSSQL::* modules written by Erland 
Sommarskog (they're a direct port of Sybase::DBlib to the MS-SQL
version of DBlibrary). You can get contact info for Erland on my web
page (see .sig below).

If you have the Sybase OpenClient libs on the NT box you could also
use straight Sybperl as the protocol is the same, although future
compatibility *could* become an issue as MS-SQL 7.x and Sybase 11.x
drift apart.
