How would one go about doing this?

If you have ADO available, and Access, then you're apparently using a Microsoft Operating System, so you should be able to use ASP (as stated above, a server-side language) with IIS/PWS to write to the Access database, if it's installed, or you install it on the server which is hosting the webpage.
Check out http://www.webmonkey.com and look under "backend" and then "databases", and you should find some really good tutorials on this. :)
You may also want to look at the following links:
P.S. Actually doing something like this is fairly easy once you get down the basics of ASP. If the links above don't help much, I would get a book like "Beginning ASP 3.0" by Wrox.com, and don't be afraid to visit me and my friends in the ASP forum. :)
You also might want to check out my login/registration scripts and/or "contact us" script - probably the latter is a bit easier...
Hope this helps!
thanks for the cool posts and links.
one question: do i need a web server to pull this off?
is there anyway a person can experiment with server side scripts such as asp or xml without having all the stuff like IIS etc?
and be able to test the scripts and run them?

your "Windows" should come with a personal web server.
that will allow you to test and run LOCALLY your server-side scripts.

Yeah, what OS do you have?
I'm using ME at home, and I installed PWS off the Win98 SE disc since ME doesn't include it... for testing scripts, it works fine (except for CDONTS email). :)
