unixODBC installation witn asterisk

Hi everyone!!!
I have already a asterisk 1.2.7 on my IBM server. We are also using a SANGOMA AU10(I guess, E1/SS7). The system does not have any database. I wanted to install a database on other server(Mysql). Is it oki to install a uniXODBC and mysql-odbc on the server that have asterisk already? Please help.

Best regards,
