Looks like I'm going with MySQL. If free, it runs on Linux, and 
apparently there are a myriad of little utilities that can convert my 
Access databases on the fly. I can tell you that I don't mind moving 
away from Access, but it was a bit of a shock when it came time to do 
the work.

The one thing you can count on in this business is that there will 
always be a learning curve. Just for convenience, may I ask what URLs 
you feel have the best info on Postgre?
