So to convert the IB 5.6 to FB 1.5 I use the FB 1.03 as a bridge
1. Get FB 1.03 and install it on my Win2000 pro client.
2. Back up the IB 5.6 DB using tools on Win98 client
3. Restore the backup via 1.03 and back it up again
4. Then restore it under 1.5

Is this correct? or is there a simpler way?

Also I have a MSSQL Server 2000 Database I want to convert
(Just Tables and Views) to FB 1.5 is there a recommended method?

Just Installed FB 1.5 under Novell SuSe 9.0 linux server (eval)
edition connectig via TCP/IP from .NET application - no problem
once the connection string/user rights were sorted.
