Importing mySQL into MS-SQL...

Good news. Microsoft just released version 5 of the SQL Server Migration Assistant for migrating from mySQL

update...

Bill Ramos covers managing data type conversions with the Migration Assistant when migrating a mySQL database to SQL Server - [http://blogs.msdn.com/b/ssma/archive/2011/04/29/converting-from-mysql-to-sql-server-working-with-data-types.aspx][2]

New code box

There's a new way to format code on the site - the red speech bubble logo will automatically format T-SQL for you. The original code box is still there for XML, etc. More details here.
