*** This only works if you have not used any Firebird 2 specific
features ***

Make a file copy of your fdb with the service not running in case you
bork something.

Make sure Firebird 2 is installed, the same build you created the
database with.

Copy the gbak.exe from Firebird 1.5.3 into the Firebird 2 folder
(rename the Firebird 2 one). Use gbak (from FB 1.5.3 kit against FB 2
service) to make a backup file.

Uninstall Firebird 2

Install Firebird 1.5.3

Use Restore your fbk file.

Heed future warnings in release notes with respect to databases you
care about combined with beta database engines.
