can I install Oracle 10.1g on MAC OS 10.5.1 without the MAC server software?

I guess the subject up top more or less says it all.

If anyone HAS installed Oracle 10.1g on MAC OS 10.5.1 NOT MAC OS 10.5.1 server I'd
really appreciate hearing from you.

I've downloaded the the Oracle 10.1g client and database on my nonserver

MAC OS 10.5.1 and got as far as succesfully doing the cpio command
(see directions).

However the instructions for doing the install for the client; or for the database; seem \
to require having the server installed - they seem to assume you're set up on a LAN -
but I'm not a systems- or dba-person, I'm an Oracle PL/SQL, and SQL
(w/ some other

things) contract programmer and would love to have it at home so I could learn new things
faster and more concretely. PL/SQL and SQL are big languages. Received on Tue Feb 05 2008 - 12:31:02 CST
