Nice work Steven,

I agree, it's kinda stupid to allow anyone besides SYSDBA to create
databases, even in a trusted environment that can be nasty on a
server. Then again, if a user can get to isql, chances are they can do a
lot of damage using other system tools if that is their goal.

You've compiled some very useful information there, Steven. All you need
now is someone to edit it, to remove the font controls from your HTML (as
nice as it looks, it's murder on 1280x1024 screen) and format it according
to The Linux Documentation Project with
SGML and hang it in the HowTo's with a link to it from IBPhoenix and the
SourceForge Firebird site and others couldn't hurt. Edwin has a good
suggestion to add a point about tunneling. Nice and thorough, and an easy
to follow read, with excellent examples.

Can't wait to see the finished product. Keep up the good work dewd.
