    rowids in 8i are an opaque data-type. so you need to convert
    them to something human-readable 1st (btw the column is
    called rowid and not rid).

    select ROWIDTOCHAR(rowid), name from test;

    ROWID              NAME
    ------------------ --------------------------------

    update test set name = 'hallo' where ROWID ='AAAGBFAAIAAAB/tAAA';

    usually one uses his/her self-defined primary key for that

    no - in oracle sql the colon indicate that you are using a
    placeholder (= bind-variable);
