Hi all

The Postgres ODBC docs seem a little too advanced for me!

Here are my simple q.s

* To "switch on" ODBC support in my Postgresql install, do I have to do 
anything at all (on the server), or is all the work on the client side?

* Seems like the psqlODBC driver must be installed on my Wintel client, and 
not on the Linux server I use

* Aren't there Linux ODBC clients?

* What is iodbc? Does it get installed on the server or on the client? Would 
my Win 2000 machine have any pre-installed driver managers that may support 
psqlODBC (so I don't have to bother with iodbc)?

* I see a number of iodbc downloads: driver manager, driver manager runtime, 
developers kit and administrator. A brief descr. on what each item may be 
needed for would be helpful.

Thats a lot of q.s

Thanks in advance
