I have a ODBC source for DB2 setup and working.

What I am not sure of is how to make a connection to DB2 thru SQLServer 2005 with a query.

Lets say my query is:

SELECT *
FROM somedb.sometable
WHERE somecolumn = 'a'

How would I get this to run using the ODBC connect?

You need to use OPENQUERY or set the DB2 database up as a linked server befoer you can query it
