I'd suggest looking at PHP.  It's fairly easy to use and has a pretty small
learning curve.  I'm not sure about it's capabilities to connect to an
MS-Access database.  Someone else here may know more about that.

Other options, though more difficult to jump into, would be Perl via CGI or
Java.  Both of those can do anything ASP can do and more.  However, both of
them have a pretty steep learning curve if you've never done anything like
this before.

Fight the good fight. :)
