you need to install the Oracle client on the machine you are using to 
run your Zope. In an other letter you say that you are running Suse 
Linux on a Mac. I am not at all certain that this combination is going 
to work. As far as I know, Oracle had Mac OS 7 drivers for Oracle 7.x or 
something like that. Then nothing until the MacOS X Oracle client for 
Oracle 10.

If you are running Linux, I believe that you need to run it on x86 or 
compatible machine.

There are excellent HowTos onhow to install oracle servers and clients 
on RedHat x86 on this site http://www.puschitz.com/.

Once you have installed the Oracle stuff, then you can use DCOracle2.

However, for running on a Mac, anything else than MacOS X is, as far as 
I know, impossible.

I am not sure this helps you at all, but this is the info I have.
