Currently, it's one of a range of options and probably the easiest one if
you are new to IBO and are just trialling it. Since IBO isn't just for
Firebird but also for InterBase, IBO's default is to load "gds32.dll" from
(1) the app dir or, failing that, (2) the system dir.

You can customise the IBO source to load the client (which can be
"fbclient.dll" if you wish) from another location. Do you want those
details at this stage?
