Delphi 7 connection with databases

What should I do to connect Delphi 7 with MS Access 2000 database?
Is there any product or ODBC and where I can find it?
When I installed Delphi7 in my computer, the instalation program only proposed to install a driver connection with Access 97.
Is there a database included with Delphi that doesn't need a driver, I mean like VB with Access?
I've been trying with Paradox, but when I run my program in another computer Delphi ask for a driver too.

Use ADOConnection, then build connection stirng to use Jet Database 4.0 or 3.2 and point to your database file. Thats all you need to connect.
Then you can use ADOQuery to access data.
