Thanx in advance. =)
If you install the server-software of the 8.0.5 DB, you don't need to install the client software as well. If you have to start installing, I would suggest installing the 9.2 DB, because it is very easy to install and has some auto tuning features on it. Besides these advantages it is faster too.
