We have installed ASE 11.9.2 on our Linux server and can connect from
clients running W95 & W98. This is using the client downloaded from within
the Sybase page for this Linux build. However, we cannot get anywhere with
W2K on the same client. Firstly, the ODBC drivers didn't install but the
registry shows where they should be. Secondly the ASE utilities for setting
up a connection complain about the SYBASE enviro variable when it exists. It
is important to get the W2K boxes talking to the server as all our
development machines run W2K.
This whole process is the beginnings of our transformation from ASA to ASE
but this glitch will halt everything and could even force us to look at
another database product as not only development but client machines will be
running a variety of W95/W98 and W2K.
Any help would be appreciated.

Make sure you have set the environment variables for the system, not the user.
