MS Access eh? Not sure if you'll find this useful at some point, but there's
a Windows tool called DBTools that I've used to move database structures from
Access to MySQL if you want to give your client the same database in Linux.
DBTools is a Windows only tool, but it's a real gem if you are stuck
administrating a MySQL installation from Windows, or if you need to transfer
data from Access to MySQL. You can then integrate MySQL with OOo or a web
server or whatever.
