I'm doing my first installs of 10g on Linux.  I fired up the URL for
Database Control and I get the message below:
Oracle Enterprise Manager 10g Database Control is designed for managing
a single database, which can be either a single instance or a cluster
database. The following premium functionality contained within this
release of Enterprise Manager 10g Database Control is available only
with an Oracle license:
Database Diagnostics Pack 
Database Tuning Pack 
Configuration Management Pack
I've done some search on Oracle's web sites.  I'm not completely clear
on what they mean here.  I know that the Diagnostic/Tuning/Mangement
packs are normally licensed separately.  So does this mean that Database
Control includes this functionality with the Oracle database license, or
must I license these items separately.  If I must license them
separately, then I can't really use Database Control without licensing
the diagnostic packs.  Correct?
Thank you,
