You have not responded to the replies that were given when you posted this
question last week.

1. Did you just *copy* the database, or did you back it up on the IB 5.x
server using IB 5.x's gbak program, using gbak -b -t ? And then, did you
copy the backup file to the new server and restore it using Fb 1.5's gbak,
gbak -c and the correct switches for a dialect 1 database?

2. Did you install the correct client libraries and isql versions on the
client machines?

3. Did you install the Classic version or Superserver on the slackware box?
