column name is ID.
SQL = "INSERT INTO homeFormUsers (firstName,lastName,emailAdd, ipAddress, interestedIn, datesubmitted)" 
SQL = SQL & "VALUES ('" & strFname & "','" & strLname & "','" & strEmailAdd & "','" & strIP & "','" & strIntersted & "','" & strCurrDateTime & "')"

this should do (presuming it's a identity
SQL = "SET NOCOUNT ON; INSERT INTO homeFormUsers (firstName,lastName,emailAdd, ipAddress, interestedIn, datesubmitted)" 
SQL = SQL & "VALUES ('" & strFname & "','" & strLname & "','" & strEmailAdd & "','" & strIP & "','" & strIntersted & "','" & strCurrDateTime & "'); SELECT SCOPE_IDENTITY() ID "
dim rst
set rst = objConn.execute(SQL) 
response.write rst.fields("ID").Value

When I use that I get:

ADODB.Recordset error '800a0cc1'
Item cannot be found in the collection corresponding to the requested name or ordinal.

you must have applied the suggested change incompletely.
either the SET NOCOUNT ON is missing, or the ID after SCOPE_IDENTITY() ...
