When you (pdf)latex the file foo.tex the footbib package produces (by default) a file foo.fb.aux which has to be processed through bibtex as

bibtex foo.db

just like a regular bibliography needs to have the foo.aux file processed via

bibtex foo

where the style (bst) and bibliography data base (bib) file are designated using \footbibliographystyle and \footbibliography commands just like \bibliographystyle and \bibliography designate the style and files for a regular bibliography.

Good Luck,
