Access will not run on it. What *could* make Access run on a *nix box is a Windows Emulator, and I don't know if there is any for Unix. What you *can* do is run your ASP pages on Unix via Chilisoft, and use ODBC to connect to your access database which would run on a Windows machine. Access is a compiled program, to the same extent as Microsoft Word. And you can't run Microsoft Word on a *nix box, right?
