comment Is there a Fedora boot CD image on the Fedora DVD?
No, actually I should supply it as an answer to my question, because it is an answer. People can rate it up or down as they see fit.

Somebody please move this back to StackOverflow.com, since it is a question about Perl programming.

Googling around suggests that this is definitely the correct fix. Maybe I should start another question: "How come I get this out of memory error when I change the client charset?"

The query works fine from tsql. I don't know enough about FreeTDS to know what is different. If I write a minimal Perl program that executes just this query, it fails. The query only gets about 10 records. I can't imagine that it's running out of memory. If I get 10 different records, without curly quotes and such, it works just fine.

Cool; that obviously did something. But now I get this error: Out of memory! What in the world is it doing to try that conversion?

Looks like that's only for Sybase. I get: DBD::Sybase::st execute failed: Server message number=195 severity=15 state=5 line=1 server=XXX text='char_convert' is not a recognized SET option. I appreciate it, though.

comment Is there a Fedora boot CD image on the Fedora DVD?
Where did you find a Fedora 11 DVD with boot.iso on it? Mine doesn't have it.

comment Is there a Fedora boot CD image on the Fedora DVD?
Yes, that's what I'm using unless someone lets me know there's another hiding on the DVD. It's what I used before I discovered the image on the DVD, actually. The boot.iso on the DVD is actually even more minimal than the netinst image. But it worked!

comment What are some pitfalls of hosting a website from home?
I hate to sound spammy, but I think it's very economical to host a low traffic website at nearlyfreespeech.net. I don't get a penny for saying so. I just think they are a good hosting provider. They used to have some downtime issues, but it would be better than anything you could do at home.
