Alright then what are the steps to use local classic? I know I need to
specify the database to connect to without a hostname component but do I
use or (what exactly is the difference?)
and what are the minimum files to install with my application to run
Firebird embedded?

Right now I'm using and isc_attach_database with a full
path to the database I want to use but I get an error that Firebird
can't run the fb_lock_mgr. Why do I need that if I'm using Firebird in
an embedded system?

Thanks for any help on this. I've been searching the Internet for
answers but have had little luck. I found one document that said I
could use and then just needed firebird.msg and that was
it but thats sure not working for me!
