1.) Thow away oraperl, it's old, unsupported, and unnecessary.
2.) Make sure that your perl is at least version 5.004.
3.) download and install the following::

http://www.perl.com/cgi-bin/cpan_mod?module=DBI
http://www.perl.com/cgi-bin/cpan_mod?module=DBD::Oracle

you install them by unpacking them, cd'ing to the directory where they're unpacked, and then

a.) read the README file and follow the directions.
  If there are no directions in the README file,  do the following steps.

perl Makefile.PL
make
make test
make install

1.) Use winzip to deal with the .tar (or .tar.gz) files
2.) Look around the site, you'll find the DBD and DBI stuff.
