I haven't actually tried getting PostgreSQL working with Access (I've
thought about it, but haven't got around to it yet...), so I can't
specifically help you there.
However, I have now got MySQL working with Access97 (Under NT 4
Workstation), and that works great. You might want to look at mySQL -
it's not as free as PostgreSQL, but it looks like a very nice SQL
server, and there seems to be heaps of add-ons and goodies for it. Nice
and quick too.
