From what I remember you'll have to use a 9i client to connect to a 10g 
database.  The 8i client never worked for me connecting to 10g.  If you do, 
just install in different homes and you should be ok.

P Consider the environment. Please don't print this e-mail unless you really 
need to.

Subject: Oracle 8i and 9i on same Windows server?


We are upgrading a database server to Oracle 10g ( over the holiday. 
It was just discovered that one Windows report server is using an Oracle 8i 
client (Windows 2000 I think). Has anyone had any problems with this 
configuration? As a contingency, we are considering installing the 9i client, 
but want to keep the 8i client available as a contingency. Does anyone recall 
any problems installing the 9i client without disturbing the existing 8i client?
