You may well be right. I have never played with Instant Client.
But the rule of thumb is that regular client versions will always be backward compatible one major version.
So in this case, 10g client should be fine to connect to a 9i server. OP should install 10g client and 10g ODBC driver.
He should probably then uninstall M$ Access, but that's a different issue...;-)
