MS Access on an Apache server, Linux Ops system

Very urgent:

Background:
We have an intel box running Redhat 7.3. As a web server we are running
Apache 1.3.27. In order to utilize .asp files we have installed and
configured the Sun One product, which is Chili Soft's .asp processor. On
the linux file system is an MS Access .mdb file.

What we need is the ability to create an ODBC data source so that the .asp
code can make an odbc connection to the .mdb file that is located on the
same server in the linux filesystem. That is the only piece to our puzzle
that we are missing.

Question: Does someone know a way to do this ?   If so, How ?

HI corelist,

I hope you would still require assistance (since the Question is almost 1 month old).

One way that I can think of would be using perl modules in CGI.

and for ASP (since I do not have that much expertise there --plain dumb).. I just had to put this link, hopefully, one would work for you - http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&q=ASP+odbc+Apache+%22Chilisoft%22&btnG=Google+Search
