Here's a thought.

If you load a database program such as mysql (free) onto your unix box, you can make use of ODBC drivers to attach to data sources other than the native mysql data.

This has been on my list of things to do, so I haven't done it yet.  But I know there are ODBC drivers available to mysql.

I'd like to know, if you try this, how it works.
