* 2 (still in Beta) contains a database program called Base that should open it.
* KOffice contains a database program called Kexi which can use an MDB plugin to open it.

Maybe you can try mdbtools ( Or if you want a gui similar to ms access you can try Kexi or Knoda both use the mdbtools.

Hope this can help you,
