Oracle 8.1.6 + PHP 5.2.0 + APACHE 2.2.2

Update:10-11Source: network consolidation
I have lot of problems trying to make the Oracle+php+Apache work... I really need help.
- Oracle 8.1.6 (I know.. is other alternative) in a Unix Server
- Apache 2.2.2 and PHP 5.2.0 in a WXP SP2 Box
- Oracle Client 8.0.5 Installed in the same WXP Box. (Oracle Instant Client doesn't work... not supported against my Oracle 8.1.6 version)
OCI8 doesn't work at all.... I can configure Oci8 extension in PHP but I can never connect to Oracle... aparently for compatibility with my DB version.
Any Ideas about how to solve it?

hi Jer and others. ummm well... bit confuse so probably some b/ground of my scenario here. the db is 8.0.5 on solaris. we have a small redhat x86 box which php being compiled by the previous guy against oci8 (i dont have much info on that oci8, like - the age of that distribution, when it was released/acquired, from where it was get)
then (recently) i have to setup an redhat4 x86_64 machine (which suppose to replace the above machine). understood that instantclient is the way to go, i proceed with that only to find out that it doesnt support db 8.x. so i thought probably if i drop instantclient and go for oci8 then i should get the old machine replaced. that's what i really mean earlier - where can i get the last release oci8?
anyway by the intense pressure i get, i managed to find in our archieve the oci8 zip file used for the above mentioned (old) machine. reinstall the new machine to just x86 o/s (because the oci8 having problem to be compiled in x86_64 - i dont have much time to deal with it), i finally got the whole thing works. i guess i have to stay this way until the 8.x db upgraded to 10g (in 2 months time) and only after that revert the o/s to x86_64 and again play with the instantclient.
love to hear comment from others on what i've did as well the answer to the question where can i get the last released oci8 (including the 64bit if available)? tqvm
