Linking a Server

MSSQL 2000 sp3a — to a remote–> mysql 4.0.20-standard The ports are open and a DSN has been created between the two using the native mysql drivers, I’ve tried the following without success: (usually when I click ‘tables’ under the linked server name, Ent. manager becomes non-responsive:
sp_addlinkedserver ‘mysqlDB1’, ‘MySQLDBNAME’, ‘MSDASQL’, NULL, NULL, ‘DSN_dev_mysql’ sp_addlinkedserver ‘mysqlDB3’, ‘MySQL’, ‘MSDASQL’, Null, Null, ‘Driver={MySQL ODBC 3.51 Driver}’ sp_addlinkedserver @server = ‘’
, @srvproduct = ‘MSDASQL’
, @provider = ‘MSDASQL’
, @datasrc = ‘dev_mysql’
, @location = ‘’
, @provstr = ‘Driver={MySQL ODBC 3.51 Driver}’
, @catalog = ‘database_mssql’
It’s to setup replication
Any Log or Event Viewr error?

No event messages, but I think I fixed it by changing ‘Driver={MySQL ODBC 3.51 Driver}’
‘Driver= {MySQL ODBC 3.51 Driver}’ {note the space beside the = sign}
