I've just installed this driver ( run batch script 'Install 0' ). I have 
a number of problems ...

Firstly, I set up a new *System* DSN ( because this has traditionally 
been the only type of connection I could make work ), but it didn't 
appear in the ODBC manager under 'System DSN' ... it appeared under 
'User DSN'. At the moment, I consider this problem to be merely 
cosmetic, but could be causing other problems down the line.

Next, I go to MS Access, link tables, select the new DSN, select a 
table, and get the error:

> Reserved error (-7749); there is no message for this error. [ OK / Help ]

If I instead try to link a view, I get:

I haven't bothered making ODBC trace log thingy yet, but can if someone 
wants them.

I'm using:

- Windows 2000 SP4 and all Windows Updates
- MS Office XP ( Access 2002 ) with SP3
- MDAC 2.8
- msjet40.dll 4.0.8618.0
- MySQL-5.0.22
