Expert: I am looking at installing a Cold fusion 8.0 web application on a Unix server with o/s 10 and Sun web server 7 with a back end MS SQL Serve2005  database server?  However some one mentioned that I would not be able to use  MS SQL Server 2005   as the back end database server since UNIX servers only work with Oracle database.  Is this true?  We would perfer to use MS SQL Server 2005  in lieu of Oracle database?

Please kindly advise...thanks
