I had a user ask me to help him set up access to a dataset on our ArcSDE server today.  I walked up to his office and opened up ArcCatalog, and discovered that the "Database Connections" category is missing from the list of connected workspaces.  Obviously, to set up a connection to ArcSDE, I need to get the "Database connections" category back.

The machine in question is running Windows 7 with ArcGIS 9.3.1. 

Has anyone here ever seen this before?  I figure it's got to be something simple, but my Google-Fu is weak today, and I'm not coming up with anything that sounds like this problem.
