Thanks all who replied. We'd consider open source first thing first.
I've tested Easysoft OOB/unixODBC, but Easysoft is commercial.
DataDirect's solution is also commercial. DBMTools is command line based
and good for transfering data from Access to other real databases. But we
need to extract data directly from Access in PHP or Perl on Linux Apache
Anyway, now that FreeTDS has nothing to do with Access, keep this thread
going is more off topic. I've posted my question to the
comp.database.ms-access newsgroup. Thanks for all the help.
