I need to install Oracle Portal on a Windows 2000 server. But I'm completely new to Oracle products, and wonder what I should install. If I look at the Oracle Application Server downloads (, only "Oracle Application Server Enterprise Edition" lists the portal.

Going to the Windows download page ( I get a long list of software. I suppose I should install "Oracle Application Server 10g (
- (Java, Standard, and Enterprise Edition)" which consists of 3 zips.

It confuses me a bit because the two lists don't match.
