PHP and MS SQL Server 2000

Hi, I' m working on a project in which i have to retrieve data from a m$ sql 2000 database stored on a remote server.

I' m doing the work using PHP on Linux (i have the FREETDS libraries installed I could get connected to the DB and everything seems to be working fine)

The queries are not complex, but first i need to obtain information about the database. I don' t know how to do that.
I need something like the "show tables" that we have in MySQL or the command "describe".

Someone knows how can i do to obtain the names of the DB tables and if it's possible some extra info too??
