Users access to database

I need some clarification about databases. I have Office xp and I've created a database in access xp. I have 10 tables and an input form that will populate these tables. I want to put the mdb on a network drive and have 10 users add to the tables in the .mdb. These users do not have access xp software. They only have excel/word/ppt 97.

Is there a way i can give them the run-time version of access xp and will it run on windows 95 with office 97 (no access 97)? If not, can i make a form in VBA in excel and have them use that to populate the access tables on the network drive? I'm hoping someone will help me understand how to accomplish what i need done. thanks
