Subject Beginner's questions - no. 1 - installation
Author Sabine Cretella
Hi, I am completely new to firefox and have real difficulties with
installation, work etc. I supposed to find a manual, but this did not
explain what I need - or maybe I am just not aware of where to read.

So maybe you can help me.

I learnt programming with dbase III+ and then went ahead with dbase IV
and my last approaches were MS-Access (now banned from my computer)

A software producer I bought my book-keeping software from told me about
Firebird and so here I am ... curious to know more and try it out.

When starting installation with

There are several options to choose - but I cannot find any explanations
on what to use - which options would be the best for me.

I am working wint WinXP (hopefully one day I can leave win an pass to
Linux ... but this depends on just one very important software).

I tried to install with different options - always uninstalling it
afterwards as I did not get any result.

Shouldn't there be some kind of software opening after installation? I
just get the info (through Task Manager) that the server app. is running.

Or am I missing something obvious?

Are there infos with screenshots somewhere on the web?

Sorry for these very, very elementary questions, but I am wondering if
something I am doing is wrong or if I don't consider everything I
should. Maybe there's also some kind of mailing list that better suites
my needs and where my questions considered as "normal" - as for sure
some of you ... ehm ... sorry.

Thanks for any hint!

Ciao, Sabine
