All Oracle software can be downloaded from:
http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/indexes/downloads/index.html?ssSourceSiteId=ocomen

It depends on what version and client you want.

If you don't need a 'full' client, check out the Instant Client.

- try with this look for Oracle Database 10g Client Release 2 (10.2.0.1.0) :

I agree with slightwv but you also need to have look on what type of bits supported on your system like 32-bit or 64-bit.

Instant client download location:
http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/database/features/instant-client/index-097480.html

You can also download the full version and while installing it you can select the option to install only client software.

@pma111 : First check if you system support 32bit OS  or 64 bit OS .

Then you will be able to know what version you need to install related to Oracle.

Not really.  You need to know what apps will be using it.

You might have a 64Bit OS but the app that needs the client is 32Bit, then you need the 32Bit client.

From that link:
Supports Oracle 8 - 11g, SQLNet 2.x - Net11 (including 'Instant Client')

I would go with the 11.2.0.2 Instant Client.  The app says it is 32Bit so:
