MySQL does not really have a concept of a Linked Server (well http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.5/en/federated-storage-engine.html, but that only talks to other MySQL servers at the moment); therefore, the answer is NO you cannot go the opposite way. Sorry.

not supported yet... maybe 6.x version will allow :)
what is your requirement? maybe you can solve it with some tasks/jobs on SQL server with db link to mySQL db...
or your app can connect to both db...
