Based on what an ODBC driver actually does, and assuming a technically 
sound model, I see no reason that you shouldn't be able to use an existing 
Win32 ODBC driver under Wine to talk to a SQL server.

In practice, the issue may be far more hairy than that. :)

If the Win32 ODBC doesn't work for you, maybe the next thing to look at 
would be compiling FreeTDS's ODBC driver using libwine...
