I just found out MySQL is free so I am getting it. If I use it instead of MS Access for my site will it be faster? Or would the change be unnoticeable because my server uses a 56K modem connection? My servlets create a new connection for each request.
MySQL is available on many platforms so I guess that is a plus. Anything else I should know?

It doesn't support transactions but other than that it is a great database.
