I wouldn't think so, the Rdb driver connects to RDB.

RDB was a competing product from Digital that runs on VMS (VAX and Alpha). Oracle bought it when Digital went bankrupt, so it is an Oracle database product now (suported and everything), but it's not at all the same thing as _the_ Oracle database (6, 7, 8i, 9i, 10G ... etc etc).
