Short of running Access under wine or a virtual machine with windows, I 
don't think so.  Depending on your usage, it might be feasible to 
convert the tables to a postgresql or mysql database that could 
subsequently be accessed from access and common linux tools, even 
simultaneously.  There might be some convoluted ways to access them 
through a proxy to a running windows program if it is always available.
