You will need something like the Z ODBC Database Connection. Someone has also
contributed a direct
Jet Zope DA product, which should be better overall, but I do not know if there are
connecting to Access 2000 with it (the author has posted on the list recently, so I am
sure he is on
the case here).

With the similar, and very simple, stuff that I have done so far, I have put the
instance in the Zope root, so that it is available globally (through aquisition).
Err, I don't
understand your question.

Access does not normally need a connection string, so you can leave this blank. I
have come across
Access applications where username/password authentication was required, but I do not
know how this
is done, and with Access <= Office 97 it is not the default.

Only if you want to work through ODBC. Database-specific adaptors will give you better
and possibly access to facilities that are not available through ODBC (which is a
lowest-common-denominator solution), but ZODBC will give you access to a larger number
types. It would probably be worth boning up on ODBC before continuing, to get clear
issues (Internet search for "ODBC", in particular Microsoft should have a good
overview, but there
are many independent suppliers producing good tools and documentation).
