I am on winxp32sp3 and please let me know if you need more info to be able to assist. Everything is working fine with mysql but I want to use Firebird as the backend.

OH ... and make sure that firebird is actually visible in the windows 'path' ...
I've still been using the 'legacy' option when installing firebird, so that the
gds32.dll is also installed to windows.

I suspect that now that PHP is actually installing a php_interbase.dll that we
need to tidy things up and work out WHICH firebird client IS actually being
used. I'm even thinking that a php_firebird.dll may be due now, with a correct
link to the firebird client rather than the default link to an interbase client.
