When i looked into this a while back, there wasnt a real easy way.
You eiether had to use DBD:Proxy or something similar and install it on
both the NT/MS SQL box and your unix box, so they could talk to each
other, or get a commercial UNIX ODBC driver, from a company like
openlink.com. You would use DBI, DBD:ODBC to talk to the driver, and then
the driver software would talk to the NT box, i believe. Now, some people
claimed that Sybase and MS SQL were similar enough that you could use
DBD:Sybase by itself to talk to the MS SQL box, but this was on a linux
only box (the ctlib needed for this was released by Sybase precompiled
for linux), and we dont run linux, so i never explored this.

Good luck!
