Sybase's DBlibrary will work with MS-SQL 7 (but maybe not 2000), as
long as you don't call dbsetversion() with DBVERSION_100 (or higher).
For sybperl, you can specify -DMSSQL in the CONFIG file, and build
Sybase::DBlib with this feature turned off.
You can also use the FreeTDS libraries (www.freetds.org).
