Is SELECT DISTINCT case-sensitive?  In other words, would it count "FIRSTNAME" as distinct from "Firstname"?

Assuming this is SQL Server, then it depends on your collation settings.

If this is Access, no.
By default, SQL is not case sensitive in any way.  However, if you desire case-sensitivity, you can change the coallation mode of the server.  Here's a link on how to do it in SQL Server 2000.  You can Google it pretty easy if you're trying to do it in something else.
Is SELECT DISTINCT case-sensitive? No, I wouldn't mess with the collation settings unless you know what your doing. But just like cuziyg says, you can make sql queries case sensitive...

good luck...
