Based on the php scripts you describe in your setup, it sounds to me like your
Zope setup is not finding your ODBC driver manager. The IBM web page says
it works with unixODBC, so I would suggest checking your unixODBC setup
first, and then making sure you include the following in your Zope startup

export ODBCINI

When you go into Zope to create your egenixODBC DA, you should see your
list of DSNs in the management interface. If you don't see your list of DSNs, 
then you don't have mxODBC connected properly to your driver manager.

Well, now that you mention it...

The driver was long ago installed on this box to allow php scripts to 
access the AS/400.  These php scripts work.  Now it would be 'nice' to 
get Zope to connect through it as well.
