    The directory is a "user-supplied" value. AFAIR (last time i installed
    an oracle-client myself is about 2 years ago (i never had to install a
    server)) the "default" is/was something like: /oracle/OraHome1

    My DBA collegues use a default of first 3 numbers without delimiters
    ie: /server/oracle/920

    When i connect to a server with sqlplus i get this:

    - snip -
    Connected to:
    Oracle9i Release 9.2.0.5.0 - 64bit Production
    JServer Release 9.2.0.5.0 - Production
    - snip -

    Oracle shows 5 numbers.

    Real Programmers consider "what you see is what you get" to be just as
    bad a concept in Text Editors as it is in women. No, the Real Programmer
    wants a "you asked for it, you got it" text editor -- complicated,
    cryptic, powerful, unforgiving, dangerous.
