RE: Oracle 8 Connection

It happened to me that installing Enterprise Manager the related Oracle_Home was put in the PATH variable before the Oracle Server one. Inverting the order of the two values everything was ok. Is it your case ?
In order to reinstall the product follow the 'clean machine' instructions in the release notes (I'm working with release 8.1.5).
