Convert 6.5 SPs to Oracle - Any Tools Out There?

We are preparing to convert from SQL 6.5 (stored procedures and data) to Oracle due to the lack of a y2k compliant patch for 6.5.  
Are there any tools out there to help convert?

SP5 is listed as addressing y2k issues ("compliant with minor issues"):  
    "It is recommended to update SQL Server to Service Pack 5
     when available to meet Year 2000 compliance requirements.
     Service Pack 5 for the English version of SQL Server 6.5
     is scheduled for release in Dec ’98."
     (http://www.microsoft.com/technet/topics/year2k/product/user_view9796EN.htm)

Unless these minor issues are showstoppers, and y2k-compliency is the only reason you are converting to Oracle, converting seems like overkill.

Thanks for the SP5 info.  It is a business decision (risk assessment) that may drive the conversion.
For now, I'm still seeking tools to make conversion an alternative.
I'd like to invite more answers please.

Thanks, several have pointed me to the Oracle page for Transparent Gateway.  
It does not appear to be available as a trial download.  I have sent a message to Oracle.  Does anyone know how to get a trial copy?
Thanks all!
Please post as an answer so I can give the points.
