Well - you have to build DBD::Sybase with the FreeTDS libs (i.e. point
the SYBASE env variable at the FreeTDS installation when you build, and
when you run a script).
Then you need to create an interfaces file entry in the "old" format
query tcp ether hostname port
This *should* work correctly.
If you have a recent SP of MS-SQL 7 then the Sybase libs should work as
well - but they won't work with MS-SQL 2000.
