    There's nothing wrong with asking beginner questions . However, please use a more descriptive title to your posts in the future. Titles like "biiiig problemmmo" don't explain your needs to anyone browsing the forums.

    1st: hot do u make a FB (firebird) table, through sql? through commands in delphi? or is there a table manager like there are for MySql?
    Well, the first way is through the command-line tool called isql, where you can interactively type in SQL statements, and see the results. Also, you should be able to save SQL in text files and "run" them in isql. But, you can also use the other methods you mention. I'm sure there is at least one, maybe more graphical programs to manage Firebird tables. Have you searched www.firebirdsql.org? Are you familiar with standard SQL "CREATE TABLE" statements?

    2nd: how do u connect to FB with Delphi, what is required? what commands? and where can i find them?
    You might want to search for a forum on Delphi, but I believe there are links to articles and tutorials on the www.firebirdsql.org website. (Also, note that articles referring to Delphi and Interbase should be very helpful, because Firebird is the open-source version of Interbase)
    The real n-tier system:

    FreeBSD -> PostgreSQL -> [any_language] -> Apache -> Mozilla/XUL

    Check out InterXpress to connect Delpi to Firebird via dbExpress.
    Database workbench is good for making tables.
