i don't use platypus, but i'm assuming it can make use of any ODBC DSN.
if not, then ignore the following.

if so, then why not use postgresql or mysql on a solaris or linux box
for the database server? both of these have good ODBC drivers for NT and
95/98 (well...as good as ODBC gets anyway).

much easier to work with and less hassle to administer than MS SQL. and
most importantly, your data isn't trapped on an NT system - you can
access it from any platform with just plain perl (and other languages),
without having to use crappy ODBC.

...just an idea, use it or not as you please.
