I use the ZEOS lib components. It's open source and can be found here:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/zeoslib

Delphi does come with the interbase components but they are not installed by default.
You should be able to find the package in the borland directory.
Offhand I cant remember the name sorry.

If you are using paradox already then I recommend switching to IBObjects www.ibobjects.com, you can convert exisiting dataset based projects to firebird in a couple of hours with a very gradual learning curve.
You can use the ones that come with delphi (IBTable,IBQuery etc search for dclib*, thats where the component lives) but you will have to rewrite most of your paradox dataset related code and IBObjects are faster

You can use the IBXpress components
which I think that actually became the newer FIBPlus set
