    Right now i am sharing an table in acces with MySQL. The only problem
    is that when i update the table through a form, the update takes about
    30 seconds. Is there a way to speed that up or should i use something
    other than MySQL. (The form updates one field for a few records)

    You could try one of several free Microsoft server engine. There is the MSDE
    that has shipped with every copy of office since office 2000. So, for the
    last 3 versions of office, there is a free 100% compatible version of sql
    server. You could try that.

    In addition, there is also the free edition of Sql server express.

    As to why your updates are slow, it could be one of zillion reasons.
    Perhaps your network is slow? Perhaps the server is configured wrong?

    If you have a standard good quality office LAN, and no internet connection,
    or some strange setup, then your performance should be very good indeed.

    I talk about some solutions, and how speed of your system is a factor here:
