Databases on NT server for mac clients

What is the best database software to run off an Windows NT server for 6 people on Macintoshes?  The information is essentially a highly confidential client database with many customised preset fields and some character, date and numerical information.  The users have moderate to basic computer literacy, so we need to make the interface user friendly.  We need to able to total and cross-correlate fields and total them, and preferaby have graphical, as well as numerical reporting.

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I've now partly checked out the demo version, which seems to be very easy to use and to do what we need.  It appears also to have potential to do many other things which could be useful.  Thanks.
