I have a blog on wordpress.com and was considering moving to wordpress.org, so I could get "SEO credit" for hosting the content. I came across this article and was wondering if this would be the equivalent from an SEO perspective: [en.support.wordpress.com...]

Anyone know?

That article is about mapping an existing WP.com blog over to a sub-domain on a TLD hosted by you (eg not on WP.com). It's not quite the same thing.

Why not just create a new install on the domain you want to use then xfer the data to the new site?

Long story, but the short version is that my site is on an SQL server and I'm trying to avoid installing MySQL on that same server. I'd rather not have to support two databases. I tried installing using it with the SQL database server and it worked for the most part, except for a key functionality.

Install it on a new host that will support that functionality.

MB is right. Even the article you noted requires that you have an install in place on your server. Just have the install on another host and use a sub-domain if you wish.
