On newer linux distros you can just install UnixODBC and FreeTDS (and mysql/postgres ODBC drivers) as packages / rpms so there shouldn't be any hassle getting the drivers to work.

Configuring the data sources may require some doc-reading but it's not complex.

If I remember correctly I used UnixODBC (but not positive). Might have used FreeTDS as well but its been a while.

CAVEAT: IF you are using 9i, then you have to use a 10g (or newer) listener as the listener controls/interfaces with the HSODBC connectivity - the 9i HSODBC is a no-go on RHEL. Once you have the 10g listener, and HSODBC setup, the connectivity works but it does take some time to get familiar with it and set it up and then tweak it.
