In Windows NT/2000/XP, Firebird works as a service. All three OS offer
the opportunity to start services via the GUI. You can also configure
that Firebird always starts when the system is started.
I hope you know where you find the service settings, because I can't
help you with this one - I don't use an English version of windows.
If you don't now how to do it, then a look into the Windows help or
friendly person of this list with an English version of Windows might
help you.

In Win95/98/98SE/Me there are no services. I don't use these systems,
but I guess you just have to start ibserver.exe and it will run like
a normal application.
