Spatial Analyst - Overlapping Ploygon Raster

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

I have a polygon layer with features that intentionally overlap (records of events over many years).

I want to be able to create a raster grid that sums the number of polygons (events) have occurred for that particular area or grid cell (say 100m x 100m). 

I have found similar articles in other forum threads but none seem to do exactly what I'm after.

I'm using ArcInfo 9.3 with Spatial Analyst.
