I installed a database called Firebird on my box. I want to know how do I connect to this database? I want to start using the database in interactive mode. Does anybody hvae any clue about Firebird? Its available on source-forge.com. I seem to have missed the link to documentation.

Firebird database...? Interactive mode? Firebird became Firefox (a webbrowser): www.mozilla.org . Please be more clear.

Sorry m8,
I meant firebird which is an RDBMS database. FireFox is the mozilla successor

I am newbie and I have Suse 9.1 pro. open terminal program go to directory /opt/firebird/bin/ and run ./isql
then run the command CONNECT '/full path/name_of_database.fdb' user 'sysdba' password 'your_password';

the password is in a file called SYSDBA.password in firebird directory.
maybe istead of 'full path/name_of_database.fdb' you should use 'localhost:/full path/name_of_database.fdb'
try both.
