    What OS?
    What version of OS?
    Which version of Oracle?
    Which password file?
    For the most part, Oracle stores it passwords in the DB.

    HUH?
    If you have NOT run the "orapwd" utility, then no "database password file " exists.
    If the $ORACLE_HOME/dbs/orapw<SID> exists, making a copy of it before applying the V8.1.7.4 patchset won't do you ANY good if/when there is a problem.
    I suggest that you contract with a DBA who knows what they are doing before irrepairable damage is done to the DB.
