I Need to design a Log-In Page that does the following:
Only Allows one log-in per user account.
logs the user's date andtime they logged in, in a separate file.

Can this be done using Front Page or Dreamweaver or should I be looking for another type of software.  Is there somewhere I can find the code and just paste and go?  I'm open to any suggestions...

If I need to use a database with it, will Microsoft Access Work?

If your only "Database" is the userlist and when they last logged in, an XML file on the server might be simpler than Access.  On the create account page, add a User Node to the userlist.xml file that looks like this:
<userList>
   <user created="09/22/2004 06:00:00">
        <name>MogalManic</name>
        <password>ski</password>  <!--This could be encrypted for security-->
        <lastLogin/>
   </user>
</userList>

When the user logs in, just update the lastLogin node.  The tools you might need to process XML files are the following:
  - JDOM: for loading and parsing XML (www.jdom.org)
  - Jaxen: for quering the XML using XPath (http://jaxen.codehaus.org)

If you don't want to get into XML, then Access would work just as well.  Maybe a little slower, but possibly more scalable if the DB needs grow.
