I had to do these steps; on the sql box:
* install the mysql client odbc or oledb software (watch out if you have to install 32 or 64 bit!)
* if it was ODBC; I created a system DSN name in the appropriate ODBC tool (32 vs 64 bit); and use that name in the linked server config
* if it was OLEDB; I could just use the remote server name directly without the DSN

if you clarify your setup steps, we might be able to track down the issue
