Try the mxODBC Zope DA. It works on Windows, Solaris, Linux, FreeBSD
and many other platforms.

Yes. All you need is a suitable ODBC driver that connects from
Linux to the MS SQL Server. FreeTDS is a free alternative, but
has a few problems esp. with longer data types and blobs. Other
alternatives are EasySoft's ODBC-ODBC bridge or one of the
many ODBC driver kits from OpenLink, DataDirect, etc.
