Rename the file to mydb.fdb, because of a bug with Windows XP System

It is telling you it can't open the file. This can happen for many
reasons, the file is not there, or another database server is hosting
the file, or another program has a lock on the file (eg System Restore).

The message regarding the path tells me you should check that the path
actually exists. The path is relative to the SERVER machine, and must
be on a local disk, not a mapped drive.
