Thanks Norman,

I tried debian etch and firebird 1.5 and works fine running my olds
apps,but there is no official debian packages for firebird 2.1.

I'll try firebird 2.1 over:
Mandriva 2008 Free (Helen Tip)
OpenSuse 11 (Your Tip and suggested by Helen too )
for my new proyect and i'll comment any result
