IIS to Access DB on different server

I have an IIS4 application running on NT4 server. It talks to an access database using ODBC. While the database resides on the web server, it works fine, however, when I move the database to a share on another NT server, I get a Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80004005'
 
   [Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access 97 Driver] The Microsoft Jet database
   engine cannot open the file '(unknown)'. It is already opened
   exclusively by another user, or you need permission to view its data.

I am not using NT challenge/response, and the anonymous IUSR_computername exists on both servers with the same password. Using server manager on the second server, I can see that IIS is attempting to connect with no username, and so the connection is being refused. How can I force IIS to use the anonymous IUSR_machine name to connect to the second server?
TIA for any help.

You will have to use Access database locally.

Go to the following link.

Thanks. Holding the database locally is not really an option. I followed the other two suggested solutions in the KB article, and neither worked :(
Guess i'll have to find another way.
Have some points for pointing me in the right direction though ;)
