OK - we seem to be making SOME progress. The next thing to try is
switching on other extensions and see that they appear in phpinfo()
Is the GD section actually showing the version 2 of the graphics
interface is running - just to confirm it IS seeing your first extension.

Normally if the firebird dll can't be found, apache gives an error
message when you start it - saying php_interbase can't be started.
I presume that firebird IS actually running as well? Would not stop
apache starting if it is not, but it would help to know. A quick check
for gds32.dll would be a good idea - make sure you destroy the old copy
that is still shipped with PHP!
