In 8 it is SID, in 8i use SERVICE_NAME


To establish connection to an instance use (with appropriate modifications):

REKS816.DRILA.US =
  (DESCRIPTION =
    (ADDRESS_LIST =
      (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = bigbluenew.drila.us)(PORT = 1521))
    )
    (CONNECT_DATA =
      (SERVICE_NAME = REKS816)
     )
  )
