    You might not need to create a linked server...
    You can just create an SSIS Package with the connection to your MySQL Database (likely using OLEDB or ODBC Connection), then you can add all the Transformation Tasks and Data Manipulation you wish.

    After you just need to schedule that SSIS to run at specific time through MSSQL Agent.

    SSIS are written using BI (component of Visual Studio which can be installed from the MSSQL 2008 installation). Then it's mainly drag&drop...
