That is great news, thanks Mike. My second problem then lies with my
current PHP Setup. I have been using the binary RPMs from RedHat up to
now, which do not sem to have been compiled with the Oracle
functionality included. If I recompile PHP, will I need the Oracle
headers on the machine also? If so this could be a problem as the Oracle
server I wish to use is not on the same machine as the webserver.
