Whenever I try to install access 2.0 or 97 on WinNT it gives me error message saying that installation is incomplete.
But still I can peacefully work on access. But when I come to my workplace the next day and try to start Access NT gives
error message saying that it cannot find access.exe (for access2.0) and msjet35.dll not found (for access97). This started
happening since last one week. Before that I was working on same NT machine without any problems with access. I never try to install both versions of access. I try with either of them. Please solve my problem.

This sounds like a network problem... If you install Access not 100% locally then you should check your rights on the network and verify your mappings.
If you HAVE Access installed 100% local then it is possible that you have a problem with Internet Explorer. IE overwrites changes some things in windows (dll's etc.)
Try to reinstal NT without IE and then install Access. If it works you know what the troublemaker is.
Also make sure you have the latest service packs on NT.
