nguye103 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Hi, I just started using perl and linux a few weeks ago, so I am not very experienced. I need to access an Oracle database on another system from Linux. I know that I need to install DBD-Oracle, but I don't know what else I need in order to install DBD-oracle because the Linux does not have Oracle. What I want to know is what I need to install and where I can find what I need to install to get DBD-Oracle to work. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
