Oracle 10R2 Client for 2008 R2 IIS Server

I am building a new IIS server for our company using 2008 R2.  The web guys need a Oracle DB client installed to talk to our Linux based Oracle Enterprise DB server, without installing an actual DB product.  Does anyone know what I should install?  OracleXE was used in the past, but this seemed like an overkill.  InstantClient BasicLite maybe?

I would definitely look at Instant Client:

Depending on exactly how they connect to the database, you may need more than one piece, but that should do what you need.

IIS to me means ASP.Net.  I would go with ODP.Net.  Check out the Oracle ODAC, Data Access Providers.

It is available from the downloads section of oracle.com.
