If you saw my other post, it looks like designer is only on NT/Win. If you can dual boot your system, you should be able to get both the database and designer working on NT or Win2000. has an email list (free, even to non-members) for designer. also for JAVA, develop, etc.

As a student, you probably don't have access to Metalink, but fyi, here is what is shown for Designer in the "Technical Libraries" tab:

*ALSO* Does your school have membership in the Oracle Academic Initiative (or whatever they call it now)?

They used to give schools *any* Oracle software for a one time $500 payment. I think that included what used to be called "bronze" support.

If you wanted upgrades, you had to pay another $500.

Congratulations on picking a very interesting topic of study.
