Domonique, To use ODBC from Linux under PHP, you will need to link PHP with a Driver Manager. iODBC is a free, Open Source Driver Manager available at www.iodbc.org. Your configure will have to include --with-iodbc=/path/to/odbcsdk More information is available in the PHP HOWTOs at www.iodbc.org.
You may use any ODBC driver with iODBC. I don't know if the driver you mention has Informix support, but if you are looking for a comparative driver I'm sure you will be pleased with OpenLink's Multi-Tier ODBC Driver. It supports Informix and can be downloaded for free with a 2-connection license from our site. Free support for installation is available at http://www.openlinksw.com/support/suppindx.htm.
