using dbExpress will provide you with cross-platform functionalities if you have the appropriate driver.

since Zeos Library have versions for Kylix, all you have to do in order to run you data-aware application under Linux is just to recompile it on Kylix. Zeos is free for commercial use and easy to use. You won't need additional drivers.

my choice is Firebird + Zeos.

I use Firebird 1.5 and the dbexpress driver from Upscene. Works fine for me.
Very good support.
