SQL Server 2008 x64 and Informix DB

First of all let me apologise for post here, but I need help.

OK, grovelling over! I am tasked with reading data from an Avaya CMS system and import it into my MSSQL2008 x64 DB.

Does anyone know where I can get a OLEDB/ODBC driver that will allow me to create a linked server within MSSQL?

I have search the IBM site plus forums but most links seem to lead nowhere.

Oh yeah... Im looking for FREE, but Im pretty sure that I will have to purchase a single tier license.

Thanks all

Have you come across this in your travels?

Edit -> from the IBM site (somewhere!!) Looks like you need to use Passport Advantage (bet you're feeling lucky) to get to the software...

Step 1: Access your software If you download your product from Passport Advantage®, follow the directions located at: http://www.ibm.com/software/howtobuy/passportadvantage

If you install Client SDK, you can select which of the following components to install:

IBM Data Server Driver, Version 9.7 (Windows® only)
IBM Informix ESQL/C with XA support, Version 3.50
IBM Informix GLS, Version 4.5
IBM Informix JDBC Driver, Version 3.50
IBM Informix .NET Provider, Version 3.50 (Windows only)
IBM Informix Object Interface for C++, Version 3.50
IBM Informix OLE DB Provider (Windows only), Version 3.50
IBM Informix Password Communications Support Module

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.
