No access to .dbf files in access 97 after installing access 2003


I need to maintain an access97 database that is linked to dbf's, but
after having installed access 2003, when I try to link a .dbf file to
an access97 database, I only have access and odbc when the dialog box
to choose the external table comes up.

I tried going to control panel and change my office 97 setup.

When I go to the data access option, dbf is grayed out with a
checkmark in it and it states that dbf access is already installed.

Yet, I don't have access to that option when trying to link my dbf
table to the access97 database.

Any way to get that option back on?
