Accessing Oracle from VB

I have Oracle 8 Personal Edition on my WindowsME PC and want to access it
from a VB6 program (on the same PC - no network connection). I can't seem
to be able to create a DSN and therefore can't get at it using ODBC. Is
there some kind of a native (or whatever) driver I can use to get at the
database from VB with ADO objects?

oledb is good practice, since all your db's won't be on the same box as your
appl.
