From what I remember you'll have to use a 9i client to connect to a 10g database. The 8i client never worked for me connecting to 10g. If you do, just install in different homes and you should be ok.

Subject: Oracle 8i and 9i on same Windows server?
We are upgrading a database server to Oracle 10g (10.2.0.4) over the holiday. It was just discovered that one Windows report server is using an Oracle 8i client (Windows 2000 I think). Has anyone had any problems with this configuration? As a contingency, we are considering installing the 9i client, but want to keep the 8i client available as a contingency. Does anyone recall any problems installing the 9i client without disturbing the existing 8i client?
