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

JL
