Subject Re: installing firebird on windows networks

Further to this:

If Firebird is being installed directly to the server, will the drive
letter selected as the destination appear the same letter to the
network? ie if the client machines see a drive 'T' that is a harddisk
on server 3, when Firebird installs to server 3, will it be installed
to T:\program files\firebird etc or will it be c:\....?

occurred to me that as the firebird installation interrogates and
makes changes to the server (registry presumably), so it runs
automatically as either a service or an application, surely the set-
up exe needs to execute on the server rather than on a pc connected
to the server?
