Error Type: Microsoft OLE DB Provider for Oracle (0x80004005)

I am currently in the process of a web server migration. There are some applications which are giving me some trouble. I have migrated some web applications, but an error msg appeared in IE informing me that the Oracle Client was needed. I then proceeded to install the Oracle 9i Client.

However, after installing the Oracle Client, I was instead presented with another different error as below (same error for all applications):
HTTP 500.100 - Internal Server Error - ASP error
Internet Information Services

Error Type:
Microsoft OLE DB Provider for Oracle (0x80004005)
Oracle error occurred, but error message could not be retrieved from Oracle.

All these applications could run on the old web server without this problem. Below are the web server specs (only the relevant ones):

New web server: Win2k SP3, Oracle 9i Client

Old web server: Win2k SP2, Oracle 8i Client

I have confirmed with the application developers, they have stated that there is no need to specify a DSN as there is already a connection string in their coding.

I have gone through the MS Knowledge Base, but found nothing that could solve this problem.

Can anybody please help me with this problem here? Thanks!

Have the application developers verified that the 9I client can connect from the webserver outside of IIS?
