Thank you, typing in the name worked! If everything was that easy!
Have you tried just typing in the SQL Server Name? I dont
always trust the drop down myself.
Also, it could be a version problem. Possibly there had
been an updated MDAC on the box before you wiped it, now i
think win98 uses like MDAC 2.1 .. Possibly look into
upgrading to MDAC 2.7 or at least 2.5 sp2..
If you do type in the server(and make sure your client is
setup to run either TCPIP or Named Pipes) then type in the
server name and try to use the ODBC manager to Test a
connection and see what error you get. I would also
suggest seeing if you can Ping or Netview the SQL server.
Maybe when you re-installed some network setting is
blocking you from seeing the server.
