MySQL has a GUI "MySQL Workbench" and there are other GUI's out that can be used, as well.
MySQL has even some "data migrators" for various db's, so if it is only the table and date you'd be probably served well by these.
You might look at this article: http://dev.mysql.com/tech-resources/articles/migrating-from-microsoft.html
at it's bottom you'll as well find links to the MySQL Workbench and other sources.

The other way round could be, to install the ODBC driver for MySQL and use the QBE-Interface from Access to get some work done.

you can create the tables and import the data e.g. as CSV, so you need first the "CREATE TABLE..." sql scripts that you can then run in mysql and next import the CSV data (if you have it available in CSV) with a filter e.g by using mysqldump, which should be included in the package.

What exactly do you plan to do?
The basic installation of MySQL allows you to run anything sql based from the commandline.
mysql -u <user> -p <passw> -i < myownscript.sql
or import / export through the use of mysqldump etc.
For the migration you can use external tools, that is independent of wether you use prompt mode or run a GUI.
