Sorry, I wasn't clear. Is there any 9i version of the client? The client
will connect to only 8i and 9i version of the database. Not sure is the 10G
client will work with 8i or 9i. All the client linux machine will do is
establish the connection to the database and query some v$tables.

Click on the appropriate link (i.e. which Linux), agree to the license and
download the client install file.

Bear in mind that Oracle is only certified against certain versions of
Linux.  I'm told that you can get it to work with others, I think someone
posted the instructions here recently, but I haven't tried it in a while and
it is a kludge which Oracle support might not support.


It's better to ask a silly question than to make a silly assumption.
