In order to connect to the Oracle Server, the user you're running as needs
access to the Oracle client utilities. If you're running on the same
system as where the oracle server is installed, then *my* advice (which
may differ from others') is:
- Add the user to the same group as the oracle user. This isn't 'dba',
which is for a specific role, but if you created the oracle user
as part of the oracle group, then add the your client user to that
- Make sure the following environment variables are set correctly:
ORACLE_HOME, PATH (which should include $ORACLE_HOME/bin) and
- Set the environment variable LD_LIBRARY_PATH to include
$ORACLE_HOME/lib/. This is probably the reason for your error,
but the other two points will help too.

I don't know about this, but you might like to try

I installed Oracle 10g on a dual-boot RHAS/FC2 system. I booted into RHAS
and installed it, and I now boot into FC2 to run it. The (very) limited
use I put to it has presented little problem.
