    Unanswered: new to Oracle-about server/client software

    I'm new to Oracle and I only have 1 computer. Can I install both the oracle server and client software on my computer?? The book I'm reading is based on Oracle 8 so I'd like to use that version.

    Thanx in advance. =)

    you can setup the server install and then install the client sw as well
    which supposedly is needed for admin tasks on the server directly

    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.

    good luck and much fun....
