If you want to distribute your Access applications to users that don't own Access, you'll need to purchase the Office Developer's Edition (ODE).  It will create a distribution of your database and will include the necessary run-time components of Access that your end-users will need to run your application.

If you're talking about a network installation over a low-bandwith network, however, you and your friends will have to be a patient lot.  A distribution is going to run you at least 10 megs.

You can get the Microsoft Office 97 Developer Edition from Microsoft sales and a variety of on-line software stores.  I'm not sure where you are physically so it is hard to tell you where to go locally.

The price runs about $400 and may be found discounted.  Try searching for it on the Web.

The ODE gives you a license to distribute the necessary files to a user and it makes registry entries to verify that it can run an MDE version of your application.
