Can not convert a mssql query to a mysql query

Hi I am converting a asp website on a windows server to php on a linux and am having trouble converting one of the mssqls to mysql.

Here is the query as a mssql:

SELECT DISTINCT(v2_dealers.ID), name, town, County, CAST(SQRT(SQUARE(" & x & " - ISNULL(tbl_Postcodes.xCoord, 2000000)) + SQUARE(" & y & " - ISNULL(tbl_Postcodes.yCoord, 200000))) / 1000 * 0.62 AS Int) AS Dist " & _
                  "FROM v2_dealers INNER JOIN v2_dealerbrands ON v2_dealers.ID=v2_dealerbrands.dealer LEFT OUTER JOIN tbl_Postcodes ON v2_dealers.Postcode=tbl_Postcodes.PC "& _
                  "left join tbl_rvlibrary on v2_dealerbrands.make=tbl_rvlibrary.make " & _
                  "WHERE v2_dealers.status='OK' and v2_dealers.id in (select ds.dealer from v2_dealersites ds,v2_sites s where s.id=ds.site and url='"&thissite&"') " & _
                  "and tbl_rvlibrary.rvid='" & rvID & "' " & _
                  "AND (SQRT(SQUARE(" & x & "- ISNULL(tbl_Postcodes.xCoord, 2000000)) + SQUARE(" & y & " - ISNULL(tbl_Postcodes.yCoord, 200000))) / 1000 * 0.62 <=150)" & _
                  " ORDER BY Dist

And my attempt of the mysql:

SELECT DISTINCT(v2_dealers.ID), name, town, County, CAST(SQUARE('$x' IS NULL(tbl_postcodes.xCoord, 2000000)) + SQUARE('$y' IS NULL(tbl_postcodes.yCoord, 200000)) / 1000 * 0.62 AS Int) AS Dist
                  FROM v2_dealers INNER JOIN v2_dealerbrands ON v2_dealers.ID=v2_dealerbrands.dealer LEFT OUTER JOIN tbl_Postcodes ON v2_dealers.Postcode=tbl_Postcodes.PC
                  left join tbl_rvlibrary on v2_dealerbrands.make=tbl_rvlibrary.make
                  WHERE v2_dealers.status='OK' and v2_dealers.id in (select ds.dealer from v2_dealersites ds,v2_sites s where s.id=ds.site and url='$thissite')
                  and tbl_rvlibrary.rvid='$rvID'
                  AND (SQRT(SQUARE('$x' IS NULL(tbl_postcodes.xCoord, 2000000)) + SQUARE('$y' IS NULL(tbl_postcodes.yCoord, 200000))) / 1000 * 0.62 <=150)
                  ORDER BY Dist


This is the error I receive:

#1064 - You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'IS NULL(tbl_postcodes.xCoord, 2000000)) + SQUARE(792660 - IS NULL(tbl_postcodes.' at line 1

I have tried using IF NULL but still receive the same error.

in MySQL, the function IsNull is not doing the same thing as in MS SQL Server.
use COALESCE instead

SELECT DISTINCT(v2_dealers.ID), name, town, County, CAST(SQUARE('$x' - COALESCE(tbl_postcodes.xCoord, 2000000)) + SQUARE('$y'   - COALESCE(tbl_postcodes.yCoord, 200000)) / 1000 * 0.62 AS Int) AS Dist
                  FROM v2_dealers INNER JOIN v2_dealerbrands ON v2_dealers.ID=v2_dealerbrands.dealer LEFT OUTER JOIN tbl_Postcodes ON v2_dealers.Postcode=tbl_Postcodes.PC
                  left join tbl_rvlibrary on v2_dealerbrands.make=tbl_rvlibrary.make
                  WHERE v2_dealers.status='OK' and v2_dealers.id in (select ds.dealer from v2_dealersites ds,v2_sites s where s.id=ds.site and url='$thissite')
                  and tbl_rvlibrary.rvid='$rvID'
                  AND (SQRT(SQUARE('$x' - COALESCE(tbl_postcodes.xCoord, 2000000)) + SQUARE('$y' - COALESCE(tbl_postcodes.yCoord, 200000))) / 1000 * 0.62 <=150)
                  ORDER BY Dist

Thanks AngelIII, 1 for the quick reply and 2 for sorting the IS NULL problem, Unfortuneatly now I receice this error:

#1064 - You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'Int) AS Dist FROM v2_dealers INNER JOIN v2_dealerbrands ON v2_dealers.ID=v2_d' at line 1

Thanks again for the help, I have never even seen the function COALESCE.

it must be INTEGER and not INT:
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/cast-functions.html#function_cast
SELECT DISTINCT(v2_dealers.ID), name, town, County
, CAST( SQUARE('$x' - COALESCE(tbl_postcodes.xCoord, 2000000))  
        + SQUARE('$y'   - COALESCE(tbl_postcodes.yCoord, 200000)) / 1000 * 0.62 AS Integer) AS Dist

FROM v2_dealers 
INNER JOIN v2_dealerbrands ON v2_dealers.ID=v2_dealerbrands.dealer 
LEFT OUTER JOIN tbl_Postcodes ON v2_dealers.Postcode=tbl_Postcodes.PC
left join tbl_rvlibrary on v2_dealerbrands.make=tbl_rvlibrary.make

WHERE v2_dealers.status='OK' 
  and v2_dealers.id in (select ds.dealer from v2_dealersites ds,v2_sites s where s.id=ds.site and url='$thissite')
  and tbl_rvlibrary.rvid='$rvID'
  AND (SQRT(SQUARE('$x' - COALESCE(tbl_postcodes.xCoord, 2000000)) + SQUARE('$y' - COALESCE(tbl_postcodes.yCoord, 200000))) / 1000 * 0.62 <=150)
ORDER BY Dist
