Access seems to be the best solution. You can access the database over the 
ODBC driver without having a "real" server running in the background. You 
only need the *.mdb files.

But keep in mind, that you're stuck to Billy's system. I don't think that 
there are any modules providing access to *.mdb files on other systems. If 
there is, please enlighten me....
