Storing attachments in Access?

Before I start, yes, I realize Access is not an ideal database solution.
I've been asked by a coworker to write a JSP/Servlet front-end to an Access database in which we're storing our data on requested enhancements to an application, so the developers can access the list and update it from their desktops. The problem is a request to be able to attach up to two files to these requests.
Anyone have any ideas how I can 'convince' Access, by the JDBC-ODBC bridge, to store the files?
Thanks in advance.

Let me refine this, since I seem to be attracting very little in the way of help.
I've figured out how to get JDBC to store the uploaded file... but not in a format I can use. (It's storing it as binary data, which is great, but I need to be able to retrieve the file in its original format for use.) Any thoughts on what I'm doing wrong?
