Installing Firebird on a new LTSP server

I have just put together an LTSP network (12 clients) and I want to fine tune my server. I would like to replace the regular Mozilla with Firebird so it will be faster to open on the terminals.
How do I do that? I have never installed any software on a RedHat so please help me. After that, I should be able to fly on my own (like TUX ???) for a while.
