U should read the 'README' for the database for this. But if it is DB2 v7 that you are using, I would say, given your details, you are using Type 2 driver.
I suppose you have to create a client catalog of the database before it allows u the ability to connect to db.
This is the indication that it is using a Type 2 Driver.

For Db2 8, there is type 4 driver available to use.
