Default trouble with database connection

I'm trying to list the 10 latest articles from a database. I keep getting the error:

Microsoft JET Database Engine error '80004005'

'\\nas03\domains\h\hackersons.com\user\htdocs\db\n ews.mdb' is not a valid path. Make sure that the path name is spelled correctly and that you are connected to the server on which the file resides.

/databass/site/index_test.asp, line 15

how do i check i've got the right info?
I've taken the files from another site and am fiddling with the code to get it working on my site.

very simple, check the db path if its correct or not, actually can you post the code where you are giving the db path.
