Ok, thanks for your suggestion. I should probably just keep it simple.

unixODBC. If the MySQL DB is not on this system you may then need an
bridge as I think freeTDS only works with MS SQL and is not suitable for

production anyway. If this is the case then you might well be better of 
with the ZMySQLDA as it won't matter to your Zope applications where the

data is coming from and this might the simplest way to get things done.
