If ASP is as slow with MySQL as it is with native Microsoft DBs (Access, SQL Server), then you may be in trouble. I did some work for a friend who owns a hosting company on a site done in ASP and the worst part of the whole thing was testing because the database was so slow. He's got some high-end servers, too, so it wasn't the system slowing it down. I have my personal site with him and it seems to load stuff from MySQL about 2-5 times as fast as the ASP-based sites load from SQL Server.
My two cents.
