To distribute your Access Database for use in computer without Microsoft Access 97, you need to use Microsoft Office 97 Developer Edition. Purchase it, and use the setup wizard to setup your distribution disks and you can distribute it freely.
To open the appropriate form upon loading your application,
go to menu Tools->Startup and in the Display Form combo box, select the form you want.
To have a password on the button, if you want only one password on the button, put your code on the onclick event of the button.
If you want more complicated security, I suggest you use the Access workgroup security.

If your are going to install your mdb onto a pc with Access97 installed, then you don't need to purchase the Office 97 Developer Edition. You just have to change the mdb into mde format and others will not be able to see your code.
