Microsoft OLE db provider for Oracle windows 2008 64 bit

Hi Experts

I want to create a linked server in SQL 2008 64 bit  (Os windows 20078 64 bit) to an Oracle 32 db with Ms OLE DB provider for Oracle provider, I have already installed Oracle instant client and the ODBC drivers and can create a DSN that successfully connects to the Oracle Data source, Iv downloaded the Microsoft Data access components but the provider is still not present, Iv googled and found that MS doesnt provide  a 64 bit provider - has anyone else resolved this isse?

- to connect to a 32bit database, you need the 32bit driver/providers. then setup the DSN using the datasource admin located in C:\Windows\SysWOW64\odbcad32.exe. the one in control panel is for 64bit driver.
