I did set this up, but cannot refer to how I did it as it was at my
previous place of employment.  However the problem I had was with using
the Oracle provider vs the MS provider.  

Grant it you need to have both, but the MS Oracle provider is a wrapper
for the Oracle provider is how I understand it.  

I can't remember the error I received when trying to use the Native
Oracle client but it simply wouldn't work.  

Please try to use the MS Oracle provider.  It should work just fine..

While I'm thinking of it,
anyone set up a linked Oracle server in 2K?

What should the provider string look like?

None of the examples I've found seem to work for me.
