Alright, things are looking somewhat up - I've switched from classic
to super managed to connect via gsec - after remembering that the
initial install routine prompted me for a sysadmin password so
'masterke' wouldn't work.

However, I've managed to hit yet another snag. The firebird isql seems
to be missing - I've tried every variant I could find on the net. At
first isql brought up the unixodbc version, which I tried renaming to
uoisql in case that helped. It didn't seem to.

By the way, I thought about the embedded version, but it seemed like a
lot more effort on a non-windows system. Basically I'm just looking
for a simple data store more robust than plain text files for a few
simple programs I'll be writing and running myself.
