I just installed version 11.5.1 of Sybase on an HPUNIX system version 10.2.  I'm a database administrator for a Microsoft SQL Server 7.0 database so I 'should' be very familar with various aspects of Sybase.

However, at this point I don't know where to begin.  Sybase was installed to the following directory:



Would it be best to reinstall Sybase to the root directory?  I say this because I keep geting an error related to a variable which is not registered when I try to run the isql utility.  I also get an error that says the isql utility couldn't be found.

If it doesn't really matter what directory Sybase is at, what do I need to do to start the server and what else do I need to do in terms of setup?  To answer this question, I'll need specifics as to what utility or application issues the command...

The end goal:

I'm trying to simulate communication (or make a prototype) between a Microsoft SQL Server 7.0 database on NT 4.0 and the Sybase database on HPUNIX.  Once I'm sure all necessary services are running for the Sybase database, I want to create the Sybase database, then create a few simple tables and a stored procedure.  Once these are created, I will call the stored procedure on the Sybase database from the NT 4.0 system.

I'll increase points as necessary if needed.
