When you do, study the release notes regarding the issue of the NPTL thread
library in RH 9; or, better, look for a Firebird 1.5.1 NPTL version, which
should be released very soon, i.e. sometime this week.

No. But you don't have to go to every client computer, only the
server. Clients don't use the security database. For now, you can rename
isc4.gdb to security.fdb, but this is only a temporary reprieve. In
future, Firebird will do security differently.
