Apex Data Loader Ability

Is it possible to config and use the data loader in batch mode to both export data from a salesforce db table and then import the data into my sql server db table?
yes, check out the docs on command-line operation

You might find this article helpful - it's all about using Data Loader in batch mode.  Although it doesn't specifically cover using a relational database as a target or source, the additional configuration is covered pretty well in the Data Loader documentation.

Hope this helps.

THANKS, every one.  As a solution I downloaded the wdsl and went with calling the webservice to get my data and then pump it in the local database myself.  Much easier than messing with the DataLoader.
