Yeah I know but I'm getting ready to head home and feeling safe from 
flames.

I'm stuck dealing with some MS SQL Server databases and would like to do 
the dealing from a Linux server.  Currently I run a script on the MS 
Windows machine extracting the data and placing it in a SQLite database 
that I can get to using a SMB/CIF mount.  (Talk about twisted.)   This is 
relatively static data -- mostly daily updates.

The better way would be to get to the MS SQL Server directly from the 
Linux box.  I've made several attempts to get the ODBC stuff set up on a 
Linux box but ran into strange errors each time (over the last year or 
so) and never succeeded.
   What I am wondering is if anyone has a nearly fool-proof set of
instructions for setting up and doing MS SQL Server connections from a
Linux (or other UNIX-like OS) box?
