Thanks Anderson:

I've never used stored procedures or triggers.

I have Helen's book, and I've been reading about them.

I'll give them a try.

The customers of this machine can't be expected to know anything
about computers, or databases, or how many cores they have in their

I'm using Inno to install my app, and my app invokes Firebird's
silent install.

I've just removed Firebird and told my code that installs
Firebird to pass the silent install

After installing the Classic Server the timing numbers came
out exactly the same.

Is it possible I'm still running SuperServer? Is there a
way to find out which server I'm using?

While my machine is modest, it's actually an HP Media Center PC,
for under the desk. I can understand why you would think it's a
notebook from the specs I provided. :)

It has a Gig of memory.

I'm a big believer in SCSI and Unix. And I'll encourage
them to use that spec as a server platform if they are serious.
But I'm sure many will choose a modest Windows PC like the

splurge for more if that will help.

As I've told the others who responded to this thread, I
appreciate your advice.
