I would think that you can get what you need by putting Instant Client on the system.  You should be able to get that here:

As far as I know, Squirrel needs JDBC drivers.  These would be included for with the instant client.  The install of instant client is just unzipping the download.

In addition to unzipping the files, you need to set up and tnsnames.ora file and also set the TNS_ADMIN environment variable.  As I recall, that was in the documentation somewhere.  You also probably have to include the directory in the CLASS_PATH.
