To clarify, you cannot run Access on Linux.
You can install ODBC support for PHP on Linux, and use ODBC drivers to talk
to an Access db on Windows.
ODBC support for PHP under Linux requires linking PHP with an ODBC Driver
iODBC (www.iodbc.org) is your best bet, and there are HOWTO's on that site
for linking --with-iodbc.
Also, you will need ODBC drivers; OpenLink provides a free download of our
commercial drivers at www.openlinksw.com.
Please let me know if you require further assistance.
