Is this on a LAN ? Check permissions of your account to these files.

RE: while opening access 97 sample database get a fatal error

Have you tried Tools/Database_Utilities/Repair_Database? If you can't even do that, you might go more general, and try Windows' ScanDisk (use Thorough and Automatically Fix Errors). This all depends, of course, on you permission status, as ahjanet mentioned.
