It's me again,
    I got it.  1st, disregard the Mysql concerns.  It was only slow because
it wouldn't display until Oracle finished in the same script.  2nd, the
reason that OCI did not work during the boot up was because APACHECTL which
starts the web server needed $ORACLE_HOME to find something (not sure
what).  I simply added the line
    export ORACLE_HOME=/u01/app/oracle/product/8.1.7
and now it works on bootup.   Whew
    I would like to know if someone out there knows why APACHECTL requires
$ORACLE_HOME, and/or what can be done to avoid putting in the extra line.  I
think this would eliminate a lot of grief to the ORACLE community.
