There are database access libraries for almost every RDBMS.
Web applications using Django, CherryPy, TurboGears and many other tools
Best book(s): Dive into Python, Learning Python

O'reilly's Learning Python by David Ascher and Mike Lutz has a
reputation for being the best book for learning Python and Yes, Python
has awesome database support and can satisfy almost all database needs.

You've already gotten several excellent answers for web applications;
if you need to create client/server desktop database apps, your best
(and AFAIK, only) choice would be Dabo: http://dabodev.com

IMO you should use Dabo (www.dabodev.com). If you want to strike on your
own check using SQLAlchemy as your database connection.

Check out the O'Reilly books.
