Hi Rick,

I have a application which requires MDAC due to the use of an MS ACCESS 
database. To make it work I installed MDAC with Dan Kegel's winetricks script 
from http://kegel.com/wine/winetricks. After the installation it was required 
to set manually the ODBC driver registry keys for the Microsoft Access 
Driver. I figured it out by comparing the ODBC registry branch of a native 
Windows registry with Wine. AppDB contains a howto 
http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=8869. Maybe that 
helps you for MSSQL.
