Simple Newbie Questions - Informix

Hello, all... I'm trying to get started with Informix under Linux (RedHat 7.3, if it matters). I've got lots of experience with other database software (SQLServer, Oracle, ODBC, IBM mainframe databases, etc), but I just can't seem to get started with Informix.

    Hello, all... I'm trying to get started with Informix under Linux
    (RedHat 7.3, if it matters). I've got lots of experience with other
    database software (SQLServer, Oracle, ODBC, IBM mainframe databases,
    etc), but I just can't seem to get started with Informix. If there's a
    doc that has the info I need, I haven't found it yet!

    Our environment is quite simple: a Linux server, and a handful of
    clients (some Linux & some Windows) all on a TCP/IP network behind a
    firewall.

    I know there's a SQLHOSTS file, and an ONCONFIG file, and an ONINIT
    command, but I can't seem to get the right combination of magic words
    (or maybe there are other places I need to put the magic words).

    Can someone out there suggest what I should put in the files, or send
    me your files as samples, or somehow get me started? Thanks!

    Hi.

    Here are my files.
    setting env to ids930uc3

    #! /bin/csh
    setenv INFORMIXDIR /informix/9.30.UC3
    setenv ONCONFIG onconfig.tsutoo930uc3
    setenv INFORMIXSERVER tsutoo930uc3
    setenv INFORMIXSQLHOSTS /home/tsutoo/etc/sqlhosts
    set path=($INFORMIXDIR/bin $path)
    set prompt="`hostname`:$INFORMIXSERVER% "
    if ($?tcsh) then
    set prompt='[%n%m %c]%$INFORMIXSERVER`% '
    else
    set prompt="`hostname`:$INFORMIXSERVER% "
    endif

    SQLHOSTS
    tsutoo930uc3 onsoctcp cspc08 tsutoo930uc3
    tsutoo930uc3shm onipcshm cspc08 sqlexec

    A part of ONCONFIG
    DBSERVERNAME tsutoo930uc3shm # Name of default database server
    DBSERVERALIASES tsutoo930uc3 # List of alternate dbservernames

    Move $INFORMIXDIR/lib/libifxpthread.so $INFORMIXDIR/lib/libifxpthread.so.bak

    HTH.
