How to use Microsoft OLEDB Provider for DB2

Hi,

We are using Microsoft OLEDB provider for DB2 2.0 for connecting to a DB2 server from SQL Server. When I try to configure a data source using Data Access tool (installed when Microsoft OLEDB Provider for DB2 2.0 is installed), it is asking for a datasource platform. The options here include DB2/MVS, DB2/400,  DB2/NT and DB2/6000. Which one we need to use to just connect to a DB2 server? Can somebody tell me how to use Microsoft OLEDB provider for DB2 by giving an example how to create a datasource?
