Event Log Collector - for the Event Viewer - to collect events into a database - How to?

Hi I am perplexed, I feel hopeless, I hope that someone can help me
with a problem. I have Visual Basic .NET

I want to develop an Event Collector. That will collect all events
from the Local computer or maybe 2 computers; (1 local and 1 remote) -

Collecting the Event Viewers Logs but only the system and application
logs and then put them into a Access database as a table, so that I
can run Querys on the events, such as:

Assuming both computers had several Event Id 2003's with Event Source
Perflib.

I want 2 input boxes that I can input the Event Id, and the Source and
then run querys to see what times they occured and on what computers
they occured on.

I want to expand on this concept later by adding more computers and
more tables, and different types of queries, but for right now I just
need to know how to do this small scale
(just for the local computer and maybe one remote computer.)

This will get me started and I think I can figure out the rest.

Please help me get out of this rut. Thanks for any advice or help no
matter what it is I am sure it will help and I can get something out
of it.

Thanks again! ~N.
