    When in the Delphi IDE, I can open tables and look at the data.  When I try to compile/run these apps however I get the error message "An error occurred while trying to initialize the Borland Database Engine and then an error number (which varies).  Why?

Are the BDE directory in your path? Could you post some of the error codes?

I have seen similar problems before.  What DB engine are you using?  A common mistake that I have found causes this is the a given data source (like an MS Access ODBC connection) is marked as Exclusive.  This means that only a single process can access that datasource, if the IDE has it open, nothing else can.

 I have received a set of fatal system-type errors including; $2104, $210A-cannot load library, $2501-ERRBASE_LIMIT+ ERRCODE_NOMEMORY, $2A04- where $2A00 is ERRCAT_INVALIDCONTEXT and $2109-ERRBASE_SYSTEM+ERRCODE_CANTLOADIDAPI.
  The database is Paradox and the table in question is not  marked for exclusive use.  In fact, I have closed the table in design-mode and tried to open it at run-time, with the same result.  Therefore, the exclusive table access would not apply in this case.

 Oh yeah, the BDE is accessible to all other programs that use it (Win95 registry settings are OK).  Even previously written Delphi apps can access the BDE successfully.

The errors you reported mean the following:

$2104 Cannot find Engine configuration file.
$210A Cannot load an IDAPI service library.
$2501 Insufficient memory for this operation.
$2A04 Operation not applicable.
$2109 Cannot load IDAPI01.DLL.
