Difference between DB2 9 client and DB2 9 runtime client

There are two packages for download (Linux):
DB2 9 client (240 MB)
DB2 runtime client (105 MB)

What's the difference?

Well I'm no expert but I believe that the Client would have some tools
for accessing a remote database for doing things like create
table/db/store procs and so on.

Where the runtime is used when you want to use another applications to
connect to db2 for example
a custom application/microsoft excel/rational development tools and so
on.

The runtime client doesn't have any graphical tools to help set it up. Nor
any graphical tools to help administer remote databases. The CLP, however,
is the same, so both can create db's, etc.

DB2 9 client functionality is a superset of DB2 9 runtime client
functionality.
