As far as I know Oracle supplies one user evaluation licenses with thei= r
software. You can download mores or less everything from the Oracle sit= e.

As far as legal stuff is concerned, I do not see why Oracle would want = to
charge for a setup you describe.

Subject: Personal Lab for study purposes...

Hi DBAs,

I think having a 'functional Oracle DBA lab' at home is useful thing. Previously I got some 'Trial Pack' CDs or Oracle 7.x which I used to us= e
for 90 days or so. I donot see those packs now.

I am planning to set up my own Oracle Server for non-commercial databas= e
use. I donot need Oracle Support. This will be used by me alone and for=

studying purposes only.

I plan to purchase a new PC soon.

Based on this, I would like to know that can I do this thing legally? Where are the 'Trial Packs' available these days? How long can I use them? Any legal issues?
Any suggestions about OS? Planning to go for NT. Just because I want the efforts to be concentrated on Oracle part. Other UNIX stuff I can do on test machines at work which have good software and hardware which would be impractical to purchase at home due to price.

Thanks and Regards,
