Get a SQL Server ODBC driver for Linux ... try
http://library.freeodbc.org/ -> downloads ->
TDS Driver 1.6, Database: Various SQL Servers 1.0, Platform: Linux (Redhat)
6.x (Intel 80x86)

The details are in the following phpbuilder article:
“Accessing a Microsoft SQL Server database from PHP running under Linux”
