[olug] Software suggestion

I have been approached about a solution for a location and I need some input from my friendly fellow geeks here.
These people help out less than fortunate families by loaning out toys/books/etc. to thier young children for a set period of time. They want to move away from the Filemaker Pro DB they are currently using. I believe that it is time for them to have a server vs 1 laptop running this db.
What I am looking for is a Linux backend running a "DB" with a frontend of WinXP/Access or browser based. If need be, a frontend Linux machine could be setup also dedicated to this function. Items COULD be barcoded to use that functionality but not a requirement.
This could be free backend software OR pay for, just looking for ideas before I meet with them again.
Thanx to anyone for their suggestions and ideas!!
