Is it somewhat as easy as it is with MySQL to get PHP to Connect to MSSQL on a machine running Win2003 Ent. ?

I figured I would have to do it via the ODBC but I've not had to use the ODBC with PHP and I assume there is a setting in the php.ini file I have to change inorder to do this?

If the server that I have running PHP accesses MySQL DBs as well, will setting it up to connect to MSSQL bugger it up? I don't like MS products much but one of our workplace applications runs SAP which is windows based and I want to use PHP to talk to the SAP database.

I noticed that the tutorial here on PHPFreaks uses the ODBC to connect to a MS Access DB but it only shows the configuration of ODBC on a winbox.

Use php mssql functions.

[a href=\"http://www.php.net/manual/en/ref.mssql.php\" target=\"_blank\"]http://www.php.net/manual/en/ref.mssql.php[/a]

For most of them, simply change myxxx to msxxxx

eg. mysql_connect() becomes mssql_connect();
If you are still using mysql_ functions, STOP! Use mysqli_ or PDO. The longer you leave it the more you will have to rewrite.
