> Hi every one, I would like to know if it is possible to connect to a sql
server 2000 using php? Any comments on this?

Sure you can.

Are you on a shared host or dedicated?  If dedicated, no problem - at most
you'll need to install/enable the FreeTDS library for PHP as noted in the
PHP manual.  If you're on a shared Windows server, still no problem.  But if
you're on a shared-host Unix server, you may have trouble convincing your
hosting company to install FreeTDS for you.  Aside from that, PHP plays
quite well with MSSQL 2k.
