Unix and databases

I had a person ask me if a Sql database can be run with Unix? I don't know can this be done? They only have Sql dba's and no oracle dba but want to use a Unix box????

Sure can.... I've used both Sybase and Oracle - you'll require some flavour of interactive SQL language....isql, mysql, sql....on your server. I'm not to flash on setting these things up - but having used these before - definitely is possible.

Have a wee look on the net to see what software you want or need (or what comes with your O/S..)
