Q: Where to get the SQL Server 2000 JDBC driver?

A: This driver is obsolete. We suggest you to use the new Microsft 
   JDBC driver for SQL Server 2005, which also works with SQL Server 2000.
   If for some reason you have to use the 2000 JDBC driver, please read on:

   Because of licensing issues, we cannot package the driver. However, you 
   can download it free from www.microsoft.com (sql/downloads or do a search for jdbc).
   On Microsoft's website, you may also find service packs that update the jars file,
   please download.

   Install the driver to any directory and find out where these 3 jar files: msbase.jar,
   mssqlserver.jar and msutil.jar are located.

   Before launching the Bugzero setup program, you need edit the file 
   bugzero/WEB-INF/classes/conf/db.properties to use this 2000 driver. By defualt, 
   the SQL Server 2005 driver is used.

   During Bugzero's setup process, it will ask you the folder where they are located,
   and the setup program will copy them to the Bugzero lib folder.

   1. If you are uing SQL Server 7, this driver will not work. You will need
      a 3rd party JDBC driver. You need manually edit db.properties and add the driver
      jar file into dir bugzero/WEB-INF/lib.

   2. The new JDBC driver for SQL Server 2005 has only one jar file, sqljdbc.jar.
