Installing Oracle 9i on a Windows 2000 machine and ODBC isn’t working?

Check out this article: How To Troubleshoot an ASP-to-Oracle Connectivity Problem.

My application wasn’t an ASP app, but it does require the use of the Microsoft Oracle Driver’s.  However whenever I tried to access the Oracle DB using said drivers I would get this message on the server:

The Oracle(tm) client and networking
  components were not found. These components are supplied by Oracle Corporation
  and are part of the Oracle Version 7.3 (or greater) client software

You will be unable to use this driver until these
  components have been installed.

Most irksome, but the tips in the article cleared the problem up, and now I get to leave the office!  Hurrah!
