Hello all. I'm trying to get an Oracle connection with my Linux Zope box. It keeps telling me 
that it needs libclntsh.so.8.0. My ORACLE_HOME and ORACLE_BASE are set correctly 
and it tells me what directory it is looking for it in, but I can't find the the file there. I can't 
find it anywhere on the system for that matter.

I couldn't find the Oracle linux client for download on the net so I bought 8.1.5 on a CD 
from an online store and installed it. It seemed to install just fine, but libclntsh.so.8.0 is 
nowhere to be found.

Here's the stats:

RedHat Linux 7.1
Zope 2.3.2
Oracle 8.1.5
ZOracleDA 2.1.0

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
