Need simple web based database example

This is a test to all you teachers. I am trying to learn how to create a simple web based database but have NO experience. As a start, can someone give me a step by step instr. to accomplish the following using ASP or ASP.NET (because that is what my godaddy account supports, I don't host my own web server)

________________________________________________________________
I have a simple MS ACCESS contact database called CONTACTS.MDB, in this Database I have 1 table called tblContacts w/ fields: FirstName, LastName, Company

I want to have a form on my website in which I can ADD, EDIT, and DELETE records from this MS ACCESS database (the same way an MS ACCESS form would work)
__________________________________________________________

I would really like a simple step by step as to where I upload the Access file on godaddy ftp, how to point to it from ASP, etc , basically every step to accomplish this.

Thanks

Ok, abit of background information.
In order to connect to a database you need to first familiarise yourself with the object you would use to allow these pages to connect to your database.
Here is a good example:

Secondly, in order to Retrieve, Update, Delete and Insert new records in your database, you need to be samiliar with SQL. Here is a good start:

If you are not familiar with any of this it would be very difficult to guide you through the process of creating what you need to create. I would suggest you use ASP.net, only because classic ASP is  slowly becoming obsolete.
Now As far as uploading a file goes, this is a whole other issue. You want to resaearch the ASP:fileUpload control in ASP.net, here is an example:

Also you should know that ASP.Net has different frameworks, 1.0, 1.1, 2.0, 3.5. I still use 2.0 because i am comfortable with it, but i should really update myself to 3.5, but if you use 2 minimum you should be fine. If you need specific information on this individual point please post back, and myself and im sure other experts will do our best to help

That a lot for one Question...

Can we break it up into bit sized pieces?

That's probably not going to happen exactly, other than for the simplest of Access forms.
