Thanks . . . I still haven't been able to get the Pointbase driver installed in SQL4X (need to figure which goes into what field, etc), but I was able to get the MS SQL driver installed (thus bringing me one more step to being able to work at home - waiting for PGP's VPN client).
Yeah, I know about the instructions from Apple but these are a bit esoteric and I think there are some steps that were left out, and I think I have MySQL installed somehow but can't figure how to access it. I've heard that there's work on a GUI installer for MySQL, and I may wait for this.
