Top N values per category

I'm using Access 97 and I'm trying to creat a query that gives me the top N values per category for a very simple table I have.  The table contains one row per day per city, and what I need is to be able to pick the top 2 Total values per city for a certain period of time (say a week, or a month).  So for example, I would have 7 Total values per city for a week, and I would like to keep the top 2 (not summed, just the 2 rows per city).  The table structure is as follows:

Date     City     Total
...     ...     ...

I have looked everywhere and the only thing I found was how to create a top values per group report (Microsoft Knowledge Base), but this gives me a report, not a query.  Any help will certainly be appreciated.

Hum, must have missed it in the MSKB:
