Rails on Linux with a MS SQL Database

So, does anyone know much about getting rails (on Linux) to talk to
mssql? There is a mssql driver, but it only works in Windows. A site
said that using ODBC might be an option, but I didn’t see a specific
ODBC driver for rails mentioned.

The nix machine runs php and it can connect to the mssql db just fine, I
don’t recall if it was using ODBC or free TDS though. I hoped rails
could just use this same driver.

Anyways, any advice or good articles out there to check out?

Thanks!

I used this article which worked for me
http://wiki.rubyonrails.org/rails/pages/HowtoConnectToMicrosoftSQLServerFromRailsOnLinux
