In my experience the ODBC driver is found under the Drivers tab in the 
ODBC Data Source Administrator. To make it available you create a DSN 
under either the User DSN or System DSN tab, where the data source is 
available either to the user that created it or to the system, 
respectively. This assumes you have the appropriate user privileges. The 
DSN creation process allows you to choose the correct driver from those 
listed in the Drivers tab.
