Just an idea here - if you're having trouble with using RH9 and Firebird,
and you've got a spare machine laying around, give FreeBSD a shot.

Installing Firebird on FreeBSD involves these highly complicated commands:

`cd /usr/ports/databases/firebird/`
`make install`

It finds the suitable source code, downloads, patches, configures, and
installs, with the above commands.

But it's probably mandated that you use RH9 - just a thought...
