To get ODBC support, they only have to open the TCP/IP port of the
MySQL server to the outside world;  This should be VERY easy for them
to do and should not require them to move MySQL to a NT server.  Are
you sure they understand that you don't need to have ODBC on their
Linux machine to allow one to connect to the machine with ODBC?

To get the above to work, you must supply the FULL path to the file
name and it must be readable to all.
