if you have been running that kind of stuff on a Linux platform before,

- Apache2/APR compiled with apr_dbd_oracle.so for authentication
- DBD::Oracle for Perl Oracle connectivity
- Oracle client

Aside from the drawbacks you are implying, would our Apache 1.3 package
put you in a position to connect to Oracle? How?
