 From what I can deduce the drivers are only available in the Windows 
version of OOo.

My mdb-tools (0.5-1 on a CentOS 5.4 system) seems to be working OK.  I 
have a 5 GByte mdb that looks to be from the USFS -- Road features from 
2006.  I was able to -export, -schema, and -tables it fine.

It you want/can share your file I'll convert for you.
