Data connections btwn Access 2002 and SharePoint 2007, how do they work?

I need to pretty quickly get up to speed on how to integrate an Access database with SharePoint. I know Access well, but I don't know SharePoint at all and don't understand how data connections work. The really fun part: I have Access 2002.

The scope of this thing has kind of exploded; it was supposed to be a small database with a few users, and now it's an indefinite size to be viewed by many people (but still edited by a small number). I'm sure Access was a really terrible idea and feel free to tell me so, but that's where I'm at. I'm fine with dumping the whole thing and starting in another program, but I don't think my bosses have the patience, and I'd have to um, learn a new program.
I'm good with HTML and CSS and designing stuff, but I have no idea how information gets from a Web form to its destination in a database, and how to pull that back out again. I think in normal websites this is PHP? Magic? But does that apply to SharePoint?
I have SharePoint Server 2007 and InfoPath 2010.
sorry my questions are so boring lately
