you can connect with oracle version 8 32-bit clients to oracle 11.2.0.3 64-bit databases
> the lowest version of either determines what is functionally available

for example:
you can't specify "Edition" in an oracle 8 client

you can't use pivoting when using a oracle 11 client connecting to a version 8,9 or 10 database

The answer has already been provided but I wanted to add:
Why not use the latest client, 11g.  It will easily connect to a 10g database.
