JDBC Drivers for Windows/MSSQL - Free??

I've been using a trial version of the Opta JDBC driver to connect to MSSQL from a Windows 2000 box.
the trial expired today and my boss won't cough up 800 bucks to buy it and I'd really rather use java than asp to do my work...
Has anyone had any luck with any open source JDBC drivers that will work on Windows 2000?
Thanks

I had the problem of finding drivers myself but found them just a few days ago. Hope the site would help you.

I need this to work on windows...
"FreeTDS is a set of libraries for Unix and Linux that allows your programs to natively talk to Microsoft SQL Server and Sybase databases."
I'll try the Microsoft driver. I notice it's in beta -- has anyone used it in a production environment? any comments?
Thanks
