Double huh?

I don't do either of those, and I connect to firebird servers no
problems. Under Windows, download the Firebird Installation/Setup, and
simply select the "client only" option during the install. Lazarus,
FPC and your programs will work just fine then. No need to copy
Firebird DLL's around manually - the Firebird Setup does everything
for you already.

Never used this, but I believe in this case you need the fbembed.dll
in the same directory as the executable, or somewhere in your Library
