Get the source, install Python, and use the sb_dbexpimp.py script to  
convert the database to a CSV file.

python scripts\sb_dbexpimp.py --help

Will give you an explanation of how it is used.  Basically you'll  
want something like:

python scripts\sb_dbexpimp.py -e -f tokens.csv -d "C:\Documents and  
Settings\{username}\Application Data\SpamBayes 

Once it's in CSV, I presume you'll be able to get it into your SQL
