in order to be configured , the 'config value' must be 1
for ur case it is '0' which means not configured

but in sql 2005 BOL saying that 'config value'  = 0 means this option is enable, r u sure aneeshattingal

By default, SQL Server does not allow ad hoc distributed queries using OPENROWSET and OPENDATASOURCE against providers other than the SQL Native Client OLE DB Provider. When this option is set to 0, SQL Server allows ad hoc access against other providers. When this option is not set or is set to 1, SQL Server does not allow ad hoc access.

here is an example

Examples
A. List the advanced configuration options
This example shows how to set and list all configuration options. Advanced configuration options are displayed by first setting the show advanced option to 1. After this has been changed, executing sp_configure with no parameters displays all configuration options.

USE master
EXEC sp_configure 'show advanced option', '1'

--Here is the message:
Configuration option 'show advanced options' changed from 0 to 1.
Run the RECONFIGURE command to install.

RECONFIGURE
EXEC sp_configure

I haven't checked the article, the best thing you can do is to just do a testing with  values 0 and 1, this will give you an idea of which value is true
