This is true, but it is a kind of advanced feature at the moment. If you want
to do this you need to use the .zip file and manually configure everything.

The downloadable installable executables should have an installation readme
which states clearly that previous versions should be uninstalled before
continuing. This only applies to the installable binaries, but it is
currently the only simple way of ensuring that Firebird installs and
uninstalls cleanly and without screwing up your system.

There are several issues which can cause problems for you, InterBase and
Firebird 1.5.

o Location of gds32.dll.
o Firebird or InterBase binaries in the path.
o The port that Firebird listens on.
o The named pipe that Firebird uses.

are the main ones.
