I have two sets of environment variables, one for an oracle database version 11g and the other set of environment variables for another oracle database version 10.2.
I want that whenever me or one of my co-workers enter this server to ask with which database are they going to work with so that the right set of environment variables can be set.

Solaris 5.10

in the user's .profile , you may ask simple question and based on the answer set the right env. variables. e.g.

while true
do
  echo "1- oracle 10"
  echo "2- oracle 11"
  read ans
  if [ $ans -eq 1 -o ans -eq 2 ]
  then
     break
  fi
done
if [ $ans -eq 1 ]
then
      set oracle 10 env here
else
      set oracle 11 env here
fi
