Using Firebird?

Hello everyone,

I need to learn to use a database with some of my Rev apps. After much
reading about the different options, I think I would like to use
Firebird.

1) It is free
2) People say it works great
3) People say it works great on windows
4) It doesn't require that I do any C compiling to make it work.

I am trying to figure out the best way to use Firebird from Revolution,
and am wondering if anyone else here does it?

Should I open up ISQL from within Rev, and use write to process commands
to control ISQL to send and receive data from Firebird? 

Is there a driver native to Rev that will work with Firebird? 

Am I missing something really obvious because I know diddlysquat about
databases and database drivers?

Thanks,

Jonathan
