Use MySQL or PostgreSQL. Both are well supported and very high quality DBMS. And both are open source/free. I would pick MySQL, as I find it a bit easier to manage, but I know others who very much disagree with me.

I would be astounded if MS query could use the SQL directly. However, you might be able to import it into MS access if that is on the mac.
