Then I tried to install the client (ship.client.lnx32.cpio)
But this seems not to be possibe on a Debian. Dee below

Starting Oracle Universal Installer...

Checking installer requirements...

Checking operating system version: must be redhat-2.1, redhat-3, SuSE-9,
SuSE-8 or UnitedLinux-1.0
Failed <<<<

And now I do not know what to do.
I did also try to install the old oracle8iR2 but also without success.

So, has someone already successfully installed an oracle client in Debian
Sarge ??? (and DBD::Oracle)

If yes, could I have a few tips about this install ??
