The file  is in the 12 hive at this location:

Program files\Microsoft Office Servers\12.0\Bin\bdcmetadata.xsd

You can download the xsd directly, here:

Please use the ready made tools available in market for the same.
The schema  is quite complex to do manually.

I would recommend bdc  MetaMan

I recommend using a tool to write your application definition. Writing your own is time consuming and very hard to debug. After the tool gets the baseline file  written, you can go in and TWEAK it.

There's Metaman BDC editor and BDC Tool.
