Sorry I am late getting into this thread ...

You may want to check out the Oracle Instant Client. This has a substantially smaller footprint than the normal Client software and is easy to install - just put the package of files on the server that you want to connect to Oracle and use the proper connect string.

You do not need to worry about O/S as this approach is basically universal.

One other Client you may want to take a look at is the JDBC connector. This is VERY small (about 20K) and is quite portable. The approach is similar to ODBC, but more secure and easier to use.
