This download includes a GUI client based application to manage migration process as well as SSMA extension pack to be installed on target SQL Server. SSMA extension pack includes functionalities to emulate Oracle features not natively supported in SQL server, tester database to support SSMA Testing features, and an application to facilitate direct server-to-server data migration.
SSMA for Oracle v5.2 is designed to support migration from Oracle 7.3 or later version to all edition of SQL Server 2005, SQL Server 2008, SQL Server 2008 R2, and SQL Server 2012.

SQL 2005 and 2008 are very close functionality-wise, and I'd expect any walk-through or tools that are designed for SQL 2005 to also work for newer versions. I'd say you're safe to use that tool to handle your migration to SQL 2008.
