How to make connection between vb and unix to store data in unix based oracle using vb under win98

I am working in a project in which i have one unix server (compaq proliant 1600) and 25 win98 clients.
I want to run visual basic program on client computers and want to store data in oracle under unix platform. Current unix version is 5.0 and oracle version is 7.3. Is it possible to that vb will store data on unix oracle database?

the clients will talk to the server using sql-net. It does not matter if your server is unix or windows (even though it's a good idea to have it on unix)

On your clients I suppose you have the oracle client installed... if you have sqlplus on thost clients: can you connect to the oracle-server ? If yes then communcation is fine.

Inside VB you can eigther use the ODBC-Connector which works with any database as long as an ODBC-Datasource is configured, or there are also native controls for VB
i.g. yes
you just nee a Oracle-Connector in VB
