I know well how to use it with clipper but never used fox.
How must I do? Is there any library ?
Please, any help will be very helpful

I don't think FoxPro 2.0 has the ability to connect to third-party
database engines. I don't think it was until Visual FoxPro (which I
think is v3.0) that they added the ability to connect to other DBMSes
via ODBC. FoxPro defintely doesn't have the RDD concept like Clipper
does.
