Hi Ruben

3) is the simplest one. 
	a) Install MyODBC on each Win box.
	b) Create an user- or system DSN for each remote mysql DB.
	c) Start Access.
	d) Link the mysql database of choice via ODBC and the above created DSN.

For 1) and 2) you need iodbc and the mysql client sources (not the server!) for it to
Please read the documentation on iodbc for this.

I don't know llinderman and never tried Applixware's DB, so I don't know if the above will
work, but it should as long as they don't need server side cursors.
