Yup, there's been PHP support for DB2 on Linux for quite some time. Use the 
--with-ibm-db2[=name] configure option when you build PHP. Then use the 
Unified ODBC PHP functions and you're rocking. Under the covers PHP uses 
DB2's native CLI interface, so it's quite fast.

(By the way, IBM has been making DB2 available on Linux for a couple of 
years now; they shipped a beta version of DB2 5.2, then shipped production 
versions of V6.1 and V7.1. Check out the DB2 V7.1 for Linux HOWTO at 
http://www.linuxdoc.org/HOWTO/DB2-HOWTO for basic DB2 installation 
instructions on a number of different Linux distributions).
