Instant Client (new with the 10g release) should work fine for you and is supported against database versions back to 8.1.

Not anymore. There used to be an SDK for the client CD that would let you build an InstallShield image that could redistribute the Oracle components. Unless you are going to use the Oracle Installer itself (via something like the Software Pacakager) I don't think anything is still [Quoted] around that will help. However, given the simplicity of the InstantClient I don't see why you could not easily wrap this in your own   installer code for some third party installer.
