I need an Oracle 8.0.5 client to export an old Oracle 8.0.5 data base, using the EXP-utility. I then will import it into an Oracle 9.2 database using an Oracle 9.2 client, using IMP.

So where to find the 8.0.5 Oracle client?

You'ld better have a client CD somewhere on site, because Oracle.com no longer provides it.  That said, why not use the 9.x software on the 8.x database?  Lastly, I presume you choose not to use the database upgrade wizard that Oracle provides (dbua)?

the database server includes a client.  exp should be in the $ORACLE_HOME/bin of your 8.0.5 database.  No need to export from a remote client,  simply do it on the database server itself.
