hey there folks, i have a bit of a sitch here and i would love some
help/input on it.

i've inherited a horrible asp/mssql app that i'm re-writting using
rails, but unfortunately i have to keep the asp version up and running.
in order to do so i've had to write some admin functions, which i've
done in rails. because the mssql schema wasn't written very well i've
had to override the table and primary keys for active record. my
'user.rb' file looks like this.

class User < ActiveRecord::Base
  set_table_name  "users"
  set_primary_key "user_id"

i'm not having any problems reading from the database (sql server 2000),
but when i try to update something i get the following error:

ActiveRecord::StatementInvalid: DBI::DatabaseError: Execute
    OLE error code:80004005 in Microsoft OLE DB Provider for SQL Server
      Cannot create new connection because in manual or distributed

[email] = 'removed_email_address@domain.invalid' WHERE user_id = 10560.0
