I have yet to attempt to load file geodatabases into MGOS but theoretically
you should be able to load using MGOS 2.5 and above using OGR feature
provider with a couple caveats.  See the following webpages for ogr drivers:

http://www.gdal.org/drv_openfilegdb.html (read access only, requires OGR

For FileGDB driver to work, OGR has to be compiled with FileGDB API library
which I do not think is compiled by default with the OGR version packaged
with MGOS.  If you are using Windows, you can get a compiled version of OGR
with FileGDB through the OSGeo4w (http://trac.osgeo.org/osgeo4w/).

When you get all the back-end stuff figured out, add a new resource using
the OGR provider to connect to the file geodatabase in Maestro.  Once you
get to the FDO provider screen and if you are connecting to the data using a
alias file/directory, right click on the box next to DataSource and under
Value which will open a prompt window to choose the data source.

Hope this helps getting you started...please report back to the group your
