You do not need ODBC. SQL*Net sufficies.

I have not done it with Zope but used it succesfully with Perl/DBI and
C++ programs.

It is enough to copy libclntsh.so and define tnsnames.ora file (and of
course your language - in this case Python/Zope - modules for Oracle) to
client machine and run TNS listner on server machine.

Sample configuration below.

* On the server (where database runs)

You should have /opt/oracle/8.0.5/network/admin/listener.ora with sth.
like (ORA is my SID, gauss is the server TCP name).

LISTENER =
  (ADDRESS_LIST =
        (ADDRESS= (PROTOCOL= IPC)(KEY= ORA))
        (ADDRESS= (PROTOCOL= IPC)(KEY= PNPKEY))
        (ADDRESS= (PROTOCOL= TCP)(Host= gauss)(Port= 1521))
  )
SID_LIST_LISTENER =
  (SID_LIST =
    (SID_DESC =
      (ORACLE_HOME= /opt/oracle/8.0.5)
      (SID_NAME = ORA)
    )
  )
STARTUP_WAIT_TIME_LISTENER = 0
CONNECT_TIMEOUT_LISTENER = 10
TRACE_LEVEL_LISTENER = OFF

Start tns listener with 

lsnrctl start

(from oracle account)

* On the client (where application runs)

Define /etc/tnsnames.ora with sth. like (you can place multiple entries
if you like)

GAUSS =
  (DESCRIPTION =
    (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL= TCP)(Host= gauss)(Port= 1521))
    (CONNECT_DATA = (SID = ORA))
  )

(sid and host must match settings on server)

Define TNS_ADMIN to point to directory the file above lies

export TNS_ADMIN=/etc

Define TWO_TASK to tnsnames.ora variable

export TWO_TASK=GAUSS

You can run your application. You can also copy tools like sqlplus and
run them.
