However, on Windows XP Pro SP3, I downloaded the 32-bit exe installer. Install ran fine. When I try to run gsec I get something like “User name or password not defined, see your system admin”, etc. or something like that.

I don't know why it worked on your first install....

C:\Programs32\Firebird\Firebird_2_0\bin>gsec -user 'SYSDBA' -pass 'masterkey'
Your user name and password are not defined. Ask your database administrator to
set up a Firebird login. unable to open database

Lose the quote marks:

C:\Programs32\Firebird\Firebird_2_0\bin>gsec -user sysdba -pass masterkey
