Im looking at venturing into working with PHP's ODBC extention.
Does anyone have any recommendations as to a Database, that is easy to
understand/get into from a novice point of view, that installs on windows 2k,
and is "free"?

MySQL is kind of free, installs on W2K and is easy to use but it doesn't require PHP's ODBC extension since PHP already has a good MySQL extension. If you really want to use ODBC and you have MS Office, you could try Access.

What Im doing is seeing if my code will run on different databases.
Of which it currently runs on mySQL, PostgreSQL and MSSQL.
As soon as I can get PHP5 installed Ill be checking out SQLLite.
But in the meantime, Im looking for a database that would interface with ODBC.
I just downloaded IBM's DB2 Personal Edition, to see what I can do there, but,
Im just looking for advice etc from others who went down this road.
