Well I am not sure about the TeraData server bit, but there is an ODBC 
driver for linux and I have used it to connect it quite successfully 
(thank you Brian) to access MySQL on a linux box from both Windows and 
Linux boxes.

The installation of the ODBC driver on linux is described in the README 
file which is part of the RODBC package.
